Rural Skill Development Project Description
Vedubuild Rural Skill Development Mission ( VRSDM ) is the flagship scheme of the Vedubuild Trust. The main objective of this Skill Certification Scheme is to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood.
V-RSDM is uniquely Designed for youth between the ages of 15 and 35 years from poor families in rural and cities. As a part of the Skill India campaign, it plays an instrumental role in supporting the social and economic programs of the government like the Make In India, Digital India, Smart Cities and Start-Up India, Stand-Up India campaigns. Over 200 million or 69% of the country’s youth population between the ages of 18 and 34 years, live in its rural areas. Of these, the bottom of the pyramid youth from poor families with no or marginal employment number about 55 million.
The National Policy for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship 2015 has identified a skills gap of 109.73 million in 24 key sectors by the year 2022. This number cannot be achieved without addressing the BoP 55 million from rural India. Also, a FICCI and Ernst – Young study published in 2013 identified a shortage of over 47 million skilled workers across the globe by 2020. This presents an unprecedented opportunity for India to train its BoP youth population and place them in jobs across the world and realize its demographic dividend.
There are several challenges preventing India’s rural poor from competing in the modern market, such as the lack of formal education and marketable skills. V-RSDM bridges this gap by funding training projects bench-marked to global standards, with an emphasis on placement, retention, career progression and foreign placement.
V-RSDM Scheme providing training in more than 150 job-role framed by Sector Skill Council and NSQF/NSDC for this program Students no need to pay any kind of training cost at Vedubuild Skill development centres across India.
