Training ‘skills-for-success’: Vimukti Pothnal

Vimukti Charitable Trust® - tailoring center had achieved a remarkable progress in training and placing many deserving girls/ women over the past years. The overarching goal of VCT is to reach out to the youngsters who are school dropouts and unemployed by imparting training that can ensure a sustainable livelihood opportunity. While working with women in the villages, the staff of the organization noticed that large number of girls dropped out of schools, especially after class VII (at the age 13-14). Long distance from the village to the high school and lack of public transport and discrimination against girls in education were found to be the main reasons for large number of girls being dropped out.

The overall objective of the training is to transform the school dropout girls into catalyst of social transformation by building their capacities for leadership and equipping them with vocational skills. 83 dropout girls benefited from this training.
