Based on market demand for skilled human resource and the need of the poor young boys and girls in need of improving their employability, KViK launched new training batches in Beauty therapy, Tally, Electrical and Plumbing. Thanks to KViK’s reputation for 100% placement, there has been a steady enrollment for new batches, particularly by girls.
KViK recently conducted a “Behavioral change” training for the Bengaluru Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBBP) at the site. Animal keepers, safari van drivers, ticketing staff and buggy drivers, numbering 65, underwent the high impact training. As a result, each one of them has become a “guide” to the thousands of visitors every day. The visitors are now are greeted politely and provided with vital information about the animals, create awareness about the sensitive ecological balance in the forest and make them enjoy the visit thoroughly and meaningfully. At the end of the 2 month long training, the Executive Director of the park and Chief Conservator of Forests, Mrs. Vanashree Vipin Singh, IFS, had this to say: “I can see the change in the trained employees. They are more communicative, confident and productive.”
In a glittering function at the beautiful campus of Indian School of Business in Hyderabad on Thursday 7th November, Action for India Forum 2019 conferred “Best Indian Social Enterprise” award on selected NGOs. The selection was through a rigorous screening and Kaushalya Vikas Kendra was one of them. The award was received by its MD Mr. Subbu Hegde.
Vocational training courses in KViK are of short duration, just 3 months. But students are so trained that they are job ready. Not just that, many of them start their own enterprise straight after training! Here are pictures of recent graduation ceremonies.
