Development skills for employment

Skill Development with an eye on employment is the need of the hour and Atrangi Duniya is a widely known NGO working for Skill Development in Delhi/NCR since 2012. There is a growing realization that having an educational degree, does not always help in getting a job commensurate with one’s qualification. However, a minimum qualification of Class X combined with some vocational skill leads to employment opportunities.

Our Aim :-

Knowledge of computers is a pre-requisite today for better performance in any job and a help in career growth. Since September 2008, we provide training in Basic & Advanced Computer Applications and Tally ERP 9 Courses. Course duration varies from 3 to 6 months.  At the end of the training, they are examined and given Certificates. More than 90% our students pass with an ‘A’ Grade.

Efforts are made to place the qualified students in Computer Operations jobs – such as Data Entry Operator, Accounts Assistant, Receptionist, Cash Memo Co-ordinator, Bank Executive etc. 

A record is maintained of the placements. More than 2000 Students have successfully completed this program and most of them have secured jobs.

Funded by the Delhi Government, this vocational training was started in 2010 in our Gender Resource Center (GRC) .  For 7 years, every six months, 50 women, drawn from the 16 slums near our Center, were trained, examined and awarded Certificates. After the closure of the GRC in 2016, our Center is currently run in collaboration with SINGER & Rotary Club of Delhi. The trainees follow the syllabus approved by SINGER, designed to create employment opportunities for them. Besides the prescribed syllabus, the women are also taught to make wall hangings, fancy bags, purses, files & folders which are sold at Diwali Melas and other forums.

The aim is to provide Cutting & Tailoring Skills to underprivileged girls /women with a view to help them earn a living by stitching clothes from their homes (self-employment) or get a job at a boutique / export house and supplement the family income, to improve their quality of life. Top 5 students are given sewing machines on completing the course. After the training, We provides hand holding support to help the beneficiaries open their own tailoring shop individually or as a collective. Trainees are also taken for exposure visits and counseled on the marketing aspects of a tailoring unit; sampling and quality control; Self Help Groups (SHG) as Tailoring Unit Co-operatives and management of SHGs. They are also encouraged to setting up shop, with an interest free loan from the Government or Self Help Group.

On 30 August 2014, our 1st Batch of 19 girls and women from the slums completed their 6 month basic Beauty Culture Training from our Skill Development Center in New Delhi, and were awarded Certificates. They learnt: Threading, Bleaching, Waxing, Facials, Manicure, Pedicure, Head & Body Massage, Bridal Make-up, Hair Cutting/Styling and Henna Application. More than 500 Women have successfully completed this program. A large number earn around Rs. 10,000/- by providing door to door services. While many are employed in Beauty Parlours, a few have set up their own.

As a result of our continues efforts we have been awarded as one of the best most active NGO working for Skill Development in Delhi/NCR by Various Organizations.
