We took our first step towards skill training with our Industry partners with the boys from Sahyog yesterday with a training workshop conducted by Kirloskar Brothers Ltd. Mr.Gulshan and Mr.Chandan from Kirloskar Brothers Ltd, brought along a prototype and conducted a pump repair training session over two hours, with 12 of the boys from the home. The boys, who are usually restless responded with rapt attention and left feeling very enriched!
The boys, mostly 17 year olds, will undergo more sessions this week and during the following weeks and at the end of this training will also be awarded with certificates from Kirloskar Brothers Ltd.
This opens up a whole new avenue of job opportunities for the boys who are mostly unskilled upto now and have little or no academic prowess. We hope this endeavor gives the boys new hope and direction for their days to come!
Special thanks to Kirloskar and SPYM for making this possible!
