For 20-year-old Jyotika Patel, hailing from a rural area in South Gujarat, finding a stable job had become extremely challenging.
After hearing about Shrimad Rajchandra Skill Development Centre, a place that provides rural youth with vocational training at no cost, she enrolled for the Data Entry Operator Course at the Centre. This was a life changing opportunity for her.
Through the course, she learnt data management, data entries, file management, telephonic communication and introduction to accounting software. She also was trained in soft skills and leadership, which helped develop her personality and build self-confidence. Today she is successfully employed as an office assistant at Raj Uphaar, a social initiative of Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care that employs tribal women.
Jyotika Patel’s life bears testimony to how vocational training can empower women in rural areas! From insecurity to self-reliance, Jyotika has come a long way and continues to be a source of inspiration to others!
