GHCL Foundation has taken up the challenge of imparting vocational skill at the grassroots level. Youths in rural location are not interested in carrying forward with their household professions hence, diversification of skill portfolio is essential and youths want to acquire employable skills and are all looking out for vocations outside the realm of their household vocations. With that in mind, the Foundation is diligently pursuing its goals in two locations.
Training of youths in Industrial Tailoring, Industrial Electrician and Nursing Assistant (Bed side attendant), Computer Skills & BPO is carried out at our training facilities in Jafrabad (Amreli District) and Bhilad (Valsad District).
Youth: 33 girls who attended the Nursing Assistant programme at Port Victor, 31 have been placed with different hospitals. The girls who attended our training and skill development programmes are generating income and helping their families through financial contributions.
