VOCATIONAL TRAINING SUPPORTED BY
GURU KRUPA FOUNDATION
The Guru Krupa Foundation (GKF) is a private foundation based in New York, USA. They have generously supported our initiative to help people with disabilities (PWDs) become self-reliant. GKF has been providing financial grants to various NGOs in India that work in education, environment, social welfare, and other areas. With their support, we have been running this program for the past two years and are now able to train more students and help them secure livelihood opportunities. We are extremely grateful to the Guru Krupa Foundation for its generous support and encouragement. It is because of their unwavering support that we can successfully implement many of our bold initiatives and work towards rehabilitating and empowering differently-abled individuals. This helps them to become independent and productive members of society.The main goal of the Vocational Training Project is to develop employable skills of the person with disabilities for their livelihood. Disabled Youth Trainees (DYTs) join our campus to undergo vocational training in typewriting and computer in our own facilities. On completion of their courses, more than 90% of them earn their livelihood or go out for suitable employment. Vocational training is offered depending on the physical and mental capabilities of the person in appropriate sections. The first step in identifying eligible and needy individuals for this livelihood program is to assess their functional abilities. Based on this evaluation, the identified person will be trained. The progress of each student is evaluated through monthly exams. The quality of service and the success of the project are analyzed based on the course completion rate, internal attendance, and records maintained by faculties. Thus far, we have trained,

We are also planning to introduce shorthand courses and weekly training sessions for school students on Saturdays and Sundays. Additionally, we are planning to conduct Language and Communication Skills training sessions, such as COPA and DTP, for computer students to increase their job opportunities.
We’re deeply grateful for the support and encouragement we have received, and we look forward to achieving more towards rehabilitating and empowering differently-abled individuals.
