Skill Development Training Programme

    Shishu Mandir Community College

        About Us

Skill Development Training Programme was inaugurated on 1st January, 2008 during the Silver Jubilee celebrations of Shishu Mandir.

Through this Programme, we offer job oriented courses absolutely free of cost to school & college dropouts and the loitering youth. According to a survey conducted by the State Department of Education, the number of out-of-school children in Karnataka rose from 14,000 in 2017-18 to 70,116 students in 2018-19. In the span of a year the increase is five-fold. Bangalore South tops the list with 10,233 out-of-school children below the age of 16. The study found migration and disinterest in studies as major reasons for dropping out of school.

Our focus is on school & college drop outs who are usually neglected by their own peers and the family members and often brushed aside as good-for-nothing. Our effort is to convince such youngsters and initiate them to skilling so that they get an identity for themselves as decently employed useful citizens.

In a fast developing city like Bangalore, job opportunities are galore even for the school dropouts, provided they are skilled.
