Social enterprise AISECT has been entrusted by National Skill Development Corportaion (NSDC) and Microsoft for their digital project operating in rural India.
NSDC and Microsoft have collaborated recently to transform India into a digitally empowered nation through NSDC’s eSkill India portal. Further, Microsoft in association with NSDC has initiated a project which is a skill development programme for creating data entry executives, exclusively for females, targeting beneficiaries from rural and semi-urban parts of India.
The CSR project’s target is to develop ICT-based skills in women residing in the project locations and generate employment. AISECT will implement the project in seven locations; Bemetara, Rajgarh, Narayanpur, Bijapur, Durg, Jhansi and Chitrakoot.
Microsoft’s project works with the mission to empower females across different organisations to widen the horizons of digital literacy in India. AISECT has pioneered 36 years of experience in skill development through ICT-based services in rural and semi-rural parts of the country and hence due to the synergies between the two entities, the project is getting implemented by AISECT at 7 locations.
AISECT, through its all-inclusive pro-women project, is bringing ICT centres for vocational training to women in rural and semi-urban communities. By combining free vocational training, skills development like entrepreneurship and job placement programmes, the AISECT model has trained 400,000 marginalized girls in 400 districts in India to date. In addition, 2,000 women entrepreneurs have also emerged from the programme, successfully running micro-enterprises, accounting for the employment of 5,000 people today.
AISECT’s CSR Partnership with Microsoft and NSDC is a further step towards meeting the objective of targeting women beneficiaries in a concerted manner and link them up with wage employment/ self-employment opportunities, by providing them quality skill development training.
