“NAYEE DISHA”
OUR VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE


“We cannot help everyone, but everyone can help someone”.

 

Our dream was to empower underprivileged women with self -worth and earning skills. This vision soon materialized when we inaugurated our vocational training centre at Shah & Nahar Estate, on 9th June 2015, starting classes for women living in the surrounding industrial area.

We named our Center ‘NAYEE DISHA’ – giving women a new direction by teaching them skills to make them financially stronger, to support their family and use their time gainfully.

Today we have several courses on offer - Spoken English, Beautician's Course, Mehndi application and Foot Spa - all taught professionally. The Tailoring class remains the most popular. Ladies are taught to make festive items like potli bags, torans and other gifting items. With the plastic ban, attractive jute bags and vegetable shopping bags were designed. Orders started pouring in and the club had to employ four ladies on a full-time basis. Students were paid per piece for the items they made. It was an “Earn as you Learn” policy, which gave them financial stability. Word of mouth publicity increased the popularity of the center, and number of students increased.

Besides displaying their creativity in our exhibition, the Ruchika Fest, Nayee Disha now participates in several outside shows. Their products are appreciated, and the students man the stall themselves, giving a further boost to their confidence and creativity. We also take up Foot Spa offers for public events.

Our dedicated Nayee Disha supervisors visits the centre daily, to teach and train the girls in innovative ways. They believe that alone one can do so little, but together we achieve so much!
