In collaboration with NSDC the Centre will focus on training and providing jobs to rural youth and women from remote areas
Upholding its commitment to women’s empowerment, Tata Power’s Powerlinks Transmission, in collaboration with the National Skill Development Coporation (NSDC) has launched a new skill development centre at the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK), in Barielly, Uttar Pradesh. The Centre will develop the skills of rural women and empower women from remote locations.
The Centre is part of Tata Power’s DAKSH initiative, which aims to make women and youth from rural India employable.
The Company realises that the best way to ensure women’s empowerment in the rural areas is to teach them life skills and provide them with vocational skills that will give them economic independence.
As part of the initiative, centres have already been set up in Bihar and West Bengal earlier, and more such centres are in the pipeline.
The Centre was inaugurated by Yogesh Luthra, CEO, Powerlinks, Diksha Singh, group head-HR & CSR, and C P Srivastav, head O&M, and other officials from Powerlinks as well as the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
In the past three years, Powerlinks has been commited to empowering the youth in remote locations and has trained and created jobs for over 1000 students from the rural areas of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
