The 2nd batch of Bosco Academy for Skills and Employment (BASE), a joint project of Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) government of India and Don Bosco Tech was inaugurated on Wednesday at Don Bosco Vocational Training Centre 3rd mile, Dimapur.
Altogether 90 fresh trainees would undergo the 90 days training.
Project Director, DRDA Dimapur, Visasolie Lhoungu who graced the occasion as chief guest, said unlike other group developmental programmes introduced in the state, Swarnajayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) was inducted mainly as a self-employment programme for setting up self employment projects and establishments.
While acknowledging the institute for their successful venture in completion and placement of trainees of the 1st batch of BASE, the chief guest lamented that many a times trainees cannot benefit as the purpose of programmes were often misutilised. He commented that “lack of patience and tolerance” have doomed many aspiring Naga entrepreneurs.
“The want for immediate results and profits have led many to abandon their projects, business, and fall short to compete with others”, added the chief guest.
Encouraging the trainees at the function, chief guest stressed that several schemes and projects are being sponsored and launched by the government for developmental purposes, and to reap benefit, one has to be sincere, dedicated, faithful, and hardworking.
Earlier in the programme, placement coordinator, Lekha elaborated on the concept of MoRD saying that national network of Don Bosco Tech (DBTech) that offers vocational skill training have been entrusted to train and give employment to rural BPL youth at a national level.
She recalled that DB Tech succeeded in training and giving placement to 162 out of 192 students of the 1st batch BASE project taking the sole responsibility in monitoring them for a year.
Training for trainees comprising mostly of youth between the age group of 18 -35 would be imparted on cutting and tailoring, retail sales and nursing assistant.
It may be mentioned that under SGSY special projects, the MoRD, Government of India had granted four projects to DB Tech and implemented under the programme BASE.
