School dropouts and college failures do not know what to do with their lives and end up taking to crime. “They need someone to show them the right direction,” said Satish Raut of the MSME Development Institute, under the ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.
Keeping in mind the growing demand for cleanliness and hygiene in various sectors, this government body has started a training institute to turn the youth of today into trained housekeepers. The MSME training centre is equipped with cleaning machines, tools and chemicals and has a BICs certified trainer. People completing the course not only receive certificates but also placement in reputed organisations. “We just completed training a team of students who will be absorbed in one of the leading hospitals. In the last three months, more than 50 workers who trained with us are working with Krystal Trade Com Pvt. Ltd. a property care management company,” Raut said.
The institute offers courses for supervisors too. The fees charged is very affordable. The institute will be expanding to get in more trainers and guest speakers. “There are many women, who have been struggling to earn a living. After receiving formal training and placement, they are now very happy. They are able to lead a more dignified life. We want more and more of such people to train under us and get suitabl employment,” Raut added.
