Vocational Training Programs
Navsarjan, along with local mahila Mandal, empowers slum residents through vocational training.
1. Computer Education:
  • Slum communities often lack access to technology. These classes bridge the digital divide.
  • Early computer skills benefit students and give them a competitive edge.
  • Two computer centers with seven computers each offer one-hour classes per batch.
  • The curriculum includes practical training in MS Office, graphic design (CorelDraw, Photoshop), and accounting (Tally).
  • Additional skills may be introduced based on student progress.
  • Computer literacy enhances their employability in the modern job market.
2. Tailoring Program:
  • Urban poverty is rising; slum families need extra income to survive.
  • Many women face limitations finding outside work due to childcare or societal norms.
  • Tailoring classes equip women with income-generating skills close to home.
  • Though with limited reach, these classes have trained over 200 women per year.
  • The six-month program costs Rs. 900 per participant.
