Mumbai Urja Marg to expand potential of Mumbai’s youth
Mumbai Urja Marg, a significant transmission infrastructure project under construction in Mumbai, announced a partnership with Siemens Aikya Education & Welfare Trust to launch a programme for Mumbai youth skill development and training. This initiative would attempt to teach more than 200 youths in the Mumbai Metropolitan area in phases, in line with the government’s vision of “Kaushal Bharat-Kushal Bharat.” The training programme will give young people the opportunity to pursue industry-relevant skill training that can help them find sustainable livelihood options in order to prepare them for the workforce.
Today at Neral, the programme was launched in the presence of Mr. Ninad Pitale, Project Director for the Mumbai Urja Marg, Mr. Rajesh Sharma, Secretary and Treasurer for the BJP’s Kalyan Badlapur Region, Mr. Avinash Bhopi, Corporator for the Kulgaon Badlapur Nagar Parishad, Mr. Ashok Rane, Chairman for the Siemens Aikya Education & Welfare Trust, Mr. Girish Ashtekar.
Twenty students who were chosen through an entrance exam will make up the inaugural batch of the training programme. The selected students will undergo a rigorous three-week training programme that will mix theoretical and practical modules to familiarize them with the fundamentals of electrical training. The educational methodology has been created to assist the students in gaining the necessary skill set to begin working in electrical workshops and with contractors. The trainees will receive a certificate, career counselling, and help with job placement upon successfully completing the course.
Social development programs
Shortlisted student from the first batch Hritik Arun Virle said, “It’s a terrific effort for kids like myself.” I already had a foundational understanding of electrical training, but this programme of study, which blends theory and practice, will complete my knowledge and prepare me for the workforce.
“I am grateful to the organizers, local authorities for initiating this kind of job-focused training programme,” remarked another student, Yash Kailas Bhoir. We would gain new skills and have access to a wide range of opportunities thanks to the training.
Project Director at Mumbai Urja Marg Ninad Pitale commented on the effort, saying: “We at Mumbai Urja Marg are committed to having a good social influence on the communities in which we work. Our primary goal in offering unemployed and impoverished youth skill development training is to open doors for them so they can realize their full potential. To ensure a larger reach and impact, further batches will be introduced in the future in addition to the initial batch.
