Vocational Training

Vocational training courses are conducted for young girls and boys who are unable to continue education after primary schools. The main objectives of these courses are to improve the economic conditions of the children’s families by generating new skills that can be used for self-employment in the village instead of depending on the nearby labour industries.

Manthan has conducted 6 courses for sewing, carpentry, cement jalis making, electrical works, candle making, solar engineering and water testing. Approximately 150 girls and boys have benefitted from these training programmes. The resources persons are members from the local villages who are engaged in these professions.
