Vocational Training

India’s booming economy has given rise to an unusual vacuum: of skilled workers who are trained to do their job and possess the tools to do that job. Whether it is electricians and plumbers who can work in the fast-expanding residential and commercial complexes in Gurgaon (and other cities in India), or tailors who can work in export houses or boutiques, or beauticians trained to work in the booming beauty saloons, employers are desperately seeking people who know their job, while village youth are equally desperately seeking jobs despite having a Class XII certificate or a college degree in their hands. Drivers, peons, security personnel, salespeople, seamstresses, beauticians, hairdressers, front office assistants, secretaries, horticulturalists, chefs, bakers… the list of jobs that do not require more than a passing fluency in English (often something that hinders getting a job), is nearly endless. However, when employers go looking for skilled people, they cannot find them.

TRF started its vocational training program with two or three basic areas: training in cutting and tailoring, electrician work, and beautician training.
