Empowering the less privileged – Kaushal Mela

kaushal mela

The Ponty Chadha Foundation has always strived to give back to the society, and help light the way for those who seek better horizons, and a better future for themselves. India, despite the tremendous progress over the years, has thousands of unemployed youth who struggle to make their mark. Regardless of their inherent skills and talents, the underprivileged sections of society don’t get the same level of opportunities as those who have proper resources and education.

Besides helping those in need in whatever way possible, The Ponty Chadha Foundation has always imparted robust training through their Skills Academy, which is an exclusive initiative for the unemployed youth. From housekeeping to learning how to be efficient security guards, The Ponty Chadha Foundation takes immense pride in serving, helping and presenting the right latitudes, which help the underprivileged youth succeed and carve a niche for themselves in the society.

Keeping the vision in mind, The Ponty Chadha Foundation recently organised a large scale job fair called Kaushal Mela, which was conducted on December 19th, at Dhaulana in Hapur. This initiative founds its wings through the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna & Skill India. The job fair brought together some of the country’s leading organisations and job seekers under one roof, and provided employment opportunities to the disadvantaged youth.

156 candidates participated in this job fair, out of which 24 were selected for different job roles.
The event was attended by various dignitaries from the area, including chief guest Deepa Ranjan (IAS), CDO, the SDM and the BDO of Dhaulana.

Here’s a glimpse of the Kaushal Rozgar Mela, where you can see the enthusiastic youth and the distinguished guests, who made the day victorious one!

All About Youth: Towards a Skillful India

All About Youth: Towards a Skilful India

“Arise, awake, and stop not until the goal is reached.” – Swami Vivekananda

Since 1985, India has been celebrating National Youth Day or Yuva Day on January 12, the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda – social reformer, philosopher and thinker. The objective behind it was to impart the philosophy and ideals of Swami Vivekananda to our students in particular, and the youth in general. Various activities like processions, speeches, conventions, presentations, seminars and competitions are planned for the day to encourage and inspire the youth to embark on a journey towards the development of a skillful country.

It was predicted that India will become the world’s youngest country by 2020, with 64 per cent of its population in the working age group of 15-64. To boost the potential of youths coming from less advantaged families, Sardar Kulwant Singh Chadha Skills Academy has been training and empowering them to earn a decent livelihood. At the academy, students are trained in the fields of facilities management, security services, hospitality and computer literacy, and are prepared to deal with on-the-job challenges and responsibilities via field demonstrations, classroom sessions and rigorous practical exercises.

In order to encourage competitiveness and make the environment more challenging, the academy even reaches out to train qualified young men from marginalised sections on a regular basis. As and when their training nears completion, these students are hired by various Indian companies and MNCs.

With Sardar Kulwant Singh Chadha Skills Academy by their side, many have headed towards a future of fulfillment. The ultimate challenge, however, lies in preparing a competent workforce that can adapt well to varying industry demands.

 

Youth Empowerment Through Education

Youth Empowerment Through EducationYouth empowerment is the axis on which empowerment of the nation revolves. The youth without education is like a weapon without the necessary ammo. It goes without saying, that education is instrumental for the realization of one’s innate self and fulfillment of goals. Education is so necessary and essential that its absence may lead one onto wrong paths.

The youth must be equipped with relevant skills and must possess an educated mind so as to be an asset to the community and be active contributors for the upliftment of the society. Self-development of the youth is directly tied with that of the society. Therefore, it is essential to provide the youth with the right opportunities, which can harness their potential. Also, in order to enable the youth with the right skill set and knowledge,  it is imperative to improve the quality of the education system. By doing so, we ensure that the products of our educational institutions become critical thinkers, problem solvers and accomplished leaders of tomorrow.

In order to remove obstacles and make education accessible to the marginalized sections of our society, various measures are being taken by the government. This includes a dedicated Skill India mission which aims to train over 400 million Indians in different skill sets by 2022.

Various initiatives under this campaign are:

  • National Skill Development Mission
  • National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship
  • Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY)
  • Skill Loan scheme
  • Rural India Skill

Taking inspiration from these initiatives, the Ponty Chadha Foundation’s Skills Academy is imparting job-related skills to the underprivileged youth, which makes them financially independent. Here’s a glimpse of their relentless efforts:
