New project launched to provide skill-based training in Dehradun, Uttarakhand

Just a month before the New Year descended, HOPE worldwide partnered with S&S Empowering Solutions Pvt. Ltd to implement the unique project in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. The project is a result of a strategic partnership between S&S Empowering Solutions Pvt. Ltd and HOPE worldwide for skill development of the construction labourers working at the Sam India Builtwell Pvt.Ltd site in Dehradun.

The Aatmavishwas project, goal is to uplift the ‘aatmavishwas’ (self-confidence) of the labourers, most of who are daily wage earners. A personal endeavour of the SAM India Builtwell Pvt.Ltd and its management body under its CSR activities, the Aatmavishwas Project is a first of its kind initiative to provide skill based training and life skills education along with financial literacy to the labourers at the construction site. The project is committed to train 800 construction workers in specific trade skills of masonry, shuttering carpenter and bar bender along with life skills education in the next one year.

Indeed Aatmavishwas project takes a holistic approach to educate the labourers’ children too (6-14 years of age) with regular tuition classes and also to provide a crèche service for the young ones. Besides it also envisages inclusion of good medical healthcare both from the preventive and the curative point of view for the labourers and their family members.

With special focus on women to become more skilled in their work, the project is envisaging special training for the women to become ‘skilled masons’ working at equal wages like the men. Giving an opportunity to the women at the site by training them in masonry, it is just taking a step ahead of making them more confident to earn and learn as their male counterparts.

The intention of SAM India Builtwell Pvt. Ltd, S&S Empowering Solutions and the HOPE worldwide through the Aatmavishwas Project is that this project will provide hope to the labourers for a better living and a better earning status.
