Vocational Training

We have referred various students to industrial training institute after Secondary school certificate. Many students got the jobs at local industrial zone with the support of institute. Recently, state government has stopped industrial training institutes for deaf and dumb and mentally challenged children. Due to this our students are not able to get employment opportunities. Therefore, here is immediate need of industrial training institute which will insure capacity building, training and skill development which will lead to employment opportunities and self esteem of students.

Capacity Building

Samata Shikshan Prasarak Mandal has an experience of running a primary and secondary school for deaf and dumb and mentally challenged children. Our staff is trained with special skills and capacities to educate the children. We will recruit a committed staff for the Industrial training Institutes and provide training to them by our existing trainer.

Sustainability Plan

We are already trying to convince Government for the Industrial training Institute to special children nevertheless government has adopted a policy of privatization of education system & giving permission as non grantable school even for deaf and dumb children. This project will create a evidence to government and civil society that special children has a skill and capacities  to work and self employment which will enable us to convince government for providing special grant for special  children school/training institution.
