'The happiest people are those who lose themselves in the service of others.'
Continuing the community service from Shiksha Kendra, it is taken to the next stage of professional skill development programme through the initiative called ‘Pravah: a Skill Development Centre’. It is the initiative by Mala Jaipuria Foundation.
The motive to start this community service programme is to make an effective difference in the lives of the not so privileged youth. To build their self-confidence, to give them an opportunity to be independent and to be able to support themselves.
Courses like Beauty Culture, Electrical works, Weaving and Tailoring, Basics of Technology and Computer Hardware, are offered and training is given by professionals. The sessions are conducted in the morning and in the evening. Students are also provided transportation and complimentary refreshment.
The past student from this centre have made us proud with fantastic placements. It is certainly a dream come true when we see the students placed with renowned Beauty Salons like L’Oréal and Lakme. Some get placed with the Insurance Sector and many more work as the back office staff with various schools and Corporate Houses.
The zeal and zest of the entrepreneurs and professionals is infectious. After all, being skilled is truly a blessing in the current scenario. A skilled individual is sure to go places and we at ‘Pravah’ assure that.
