SKILL DEVELOPMENT FOR YOUTH


DISA’s Skill development trainings are driven by the core belief that everyone has potential and ability but due to adverse circumstances, women in the informal sector are sometimes not able to achieve their goals. Our training programmes are a collective approach to overall development of women and our capacity building programmes cut across all the requirements.

Our training programmes help to develop women’s self-esteem, confidence and leadership skills. Local women leaders understand the power of collective struggle and organize to take the DISA movement forward. Trainings help women build their capacity, both technical as well as managerial. They also discuss the importance of women workers in society and the struggle for equality. These training programmes help raise the women’s awareness levels. They also learn to share information and experiences and develop a sense of pride in themselves and their organization.

Given the illiteracy level in India and amongst our members, all our training methods are based on interactive approaches. The participants are involved from the very beginning in the training through activities like role-play, discussions, exercises, drawings, songs and games. We believe in “learning by doing” and this philosophy guides the classes and field exposures.

Our capacity building programmes can be categorized as leadership, technical, exposure and dialogue and other training programmes. DISA took steps to impart skills to enhance their employability of the youth. Trainings were given 713 beneficiaries mostly teenage girls in Garment Making in DISA Harraiya with the support of Little Flower Society, Germany. Many of the trained youth are having their practices at home or in their own villages, whereas 20 persons have gone outside for work in different companies for their work.

The Facilitators were given special trainings on community based impact and various technical aspects, training on Systemic Change, Motivation and Leadership Issues.
