The YMC has tried to initiate one more unique Skilling programme. On the 23 & 24 of June 2017, there will be a first of its kind programme in a rural area - a solar Training programme. The first batch will be from our Adivasi girls who will learn a skill and, having gained it, be in demand for it in her hamlet. From this batch, 10 will be chosen as trainers for next day's class.

The program is that of building a solar lamp. All the necessary circuit designing and building tools (solar circuit, soldering irons, screw drivers, wire cutters) will be provided by us.

We would be splitting the batch of 100 into two groups of 50 over two days. From the first batch we would be picking 10 students to help teach the remaining kids the next day. This program is very unique because for the first time, students themselves will be training other kids and developing a skill.

Cost will be 550 per student. We need to collect funds or get donors for these

Please help us raise the funds.

We hope to organize more such skilling training which can create more jobs.
