Skill Development Training

Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economy growth and social development of the country. In rapidly growing economies like India with a vast and ever-increasing population, the number of underprivileged youths in India who lacks education and proper guidance is humungous. It is not their lack of knowledge that is the reason for this. It is because they do not possess the right skills and attitude. It is crucial for the energy of the underprivileged youth to be channelized properly with proper direction and learning to aid in their economic growth and make them contribute to nation building.

ISDA conducts a large number of entrepreneurship and skill development programmes and has experience of running a wide array of vocational skill development programs.

Our centres are running immersive, practical oriented courses where hands on learning is the basis. These industries designed courses have wide acceptability among recruiters and also provide skills of basic entrepreneurship to the trainees. Every year hundreds of youths are being churned at these vocational training centres which are capable of generating employability for these underprivileged youth.

Our focus areas in Skill Development Project:

  • Practical based training approach for better placement
  • Soft skill/Life skill training under Employee Engagement
  • Campus Interviews by potential employers
  • Facilitating and developing entrepreneurship
  • Providing employability skills and employment

Sanitation and Hygiene

India is the second most populous country in the world with population of 1.35 billion among which 72% of the population are the rural dwellers. 34% of Primary schools and 25% of rural health care centres lack improved sanitation facilities, which obviously leads to health threatening sickness to the people. Sanitation and Hygiene intervention by ISDA is to promote quality water, sanitation and hygiene to do our bit to eliminate diseases and difficulties faced by the underprivileged people of India.

Quality Education

Apart from home, children spend most of their time in school. School Infrastructure plays an important role in creating a favourable environment for a child’s growth. Large number of primary schools has no buildings or rundown buildings. There are no basic facilities in schools like proper lighting in class, drinking water, urinals and electricity, furniture, study materials etc. Most of schools don’t have provision of drinking water and separate girl’s toilets.

Whereas Right to Education Act 2009 mandates barrier free access, separate toilet for boys and girls, safe and clean drinking water facility for all children.

We are collaborating with government schools, local communities and families to ensure the importance of literacy and role of educational infrastructure to achieve the full potential of students.
