Sahbhagi Vocational Training Centre
SST has accelerated its new initiative Sahbhagi Vocational Training Centre (SVTC). As a result of this emphasis SST has seen tremendous gains in enrolment and received high praise from students and their families. The importance of SVTC is based on the ever-growing societal need for skilled labor.
SVTC is a platform for youth to learn new skill and empower themselves for making change in their lives. Through vocational training SST is enhancing the employability of semi-literate youth.
By the end of the financial year 14 batches of basic computer literary have concluded instruction for its young female students for rural backgrounds. SST was very proud to even absorb many of its former students at a professional capacity in helping to do data collection and data entry for dissemination via the IT department and library.
Apart from this course another course on mobile repairing has also completed its 8th batch. Each batch consisted of 8 to 12 males. The classes operate on daily basis for 2 hours.
SVTC has initiated sewing course and Bal Shikshan Kendra in hussainabad block, Jharkhand. These courses aim at empowerment of women and educating the children. Both the centers are running successfully and seeing the response SST is also planning to start sewing course in other places also.
In addition to these necessary vocational “hard skills,’’ the youths of SVTC also undergo training in the soft skills of personality development like English speaking, and office etiquette. The holistic approach will create the civically aware and engaged citizens that India needs to continue its phenomenal rise.
