Piduguralla, India Vocational Training for Migrant Youth
A vocational training centre built by ADMCF for Indian partner, ASSIST, in Piduguralla, Andhra Pradesh opened in mid-August and is already close to capacity, with 100 youth aged 16-25 enrolled in three skills programmes and 30 girls in residence. ASSIST is a community development and education organisation working with migrants from other Indian regions seeking jobs in the local limestone industry. The organisation works with 31 local communities that together amount to 21,000 people to make sure children are educated rather than employed while parents work. The new training centre will ensure those teens who for whatever reason can't move on to senior school will receive skills training to keep them out of the low-paid,low-skill and dangerous jobs on offer in the limestone industry. Read More
