"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

Students do not pay any "fee"; their training is completely free. Unnati further provides them with food, bus passes, etc. apart from the course materials.

Computer training is provided.

Unnati is planning to construct its own premises. The budget is INR 2 crores. The facility would include a multi-purpose community hall, 4 vocational training rooms, 1 reading room, dormitory, kitches, etc. The estimated area is around 22000 sq.ft.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

105 students since inception have been succesfully trained and placed. 70 students were women. On an average, the annual income of the student''''''''s family was < Rs. 18000 p.m. Students were placed in companies like Levi Strauss, Arvind Mills, Food world, Fabmall, Telemarketing agencies, etc. with an annual income of Rs. 25,000 on an average. The fifth batch graduated recently and all were placed.

 

  Goals

 

 

Productivity is the solution. It is better to teach a man how to bake bread rather than gift him a loaf everyday. Vocational training for the underprivileged youth in these sectors: - Tailoring/Garment Industry - Retail Market English Spoken skiils, Computer skills, personality development, etc. emphasized. Unnati is planning to further include Secretary and Domestic Caretaker training programs.
