Create sustainable livelihood opportunities
Many underprivileged and disruptive people lack the skills and knowledge to free themselves from the crutches of poverty and misery. With the right financial and skilling aids, these people can overcome their constraints. We, at Mindtree Foundation, have been working tirelessly to equip such people with skills that can provide them employment in industries such as carpentry, plumbing, farming, and garment manufacturing.
Teaching skills to transform the lives of the underprivileged
We have partnered with an NGO to enhance prisoner skills at Parappana Agrahara Central Prisons and prepare them for a self-sustaining life after they complete prison terms. Our flagship program trains prison women in mushroom cultivation, embroidery, and tailoring. What’s more, prisoners who participate in this skilling program get seven days of remission per month. This program has been well-received by Parappana Agrahara authorities and we are now preparing to extend this program to other jails.
