Him Jyoti Vocational Training Institute
Encouraged by the singular success of the School, the Society will now establish a Vocational Training Institute, whereby select girls from economically weaker sections of society will get the opportunity to learn vocational skills – training that will directly lead to employment, careers and thus, empowerment.
The Institute will begin with 100 girls – five courses with 20 trainees each, for a two year programme, beginning April 2015. This will be a world class vocational training facility that will enable young women in Uttarakhand to take a crucial step forward in their lives.
The project will be supported by the Government, socially conscious individuals and public and private sector companies.
The Bhumi Poojan of what will be the Institute was conducted in March 2014, and the project flagged off by a commitment of Rupees three crore by Shri Anil Chanana, and Rupees fifty lakh by Smt and Shri Sudarshan Agarwal.
On March 4, 2014 we performed the Bhumi Pujan of a new building to set up the Vocational Training Institute for 200 girls from economically weaker sections of society. We shall have five different vocational courses for these girls so that after their two year study, they are able to make a decent living for themselves and their families. The courses are :
• Apparel Sector (Fashion Technology/ Dress Making)-2 years duration.
• Architecture Draughtsman ship-2 years duration.
• Computer Operator & Programming-1/2year’s duration.
• Hotel Management-2 year’s duration.
• Travel & Tour assistant-1/2year’s duration.
