New Delhi, 29 June 2016
Since 2007 Kamalini Vocational Training Centre with a vision that “Women are the key to a thriving future for their family and community” has empowered hundreds of under- privileged young girls and women in the national capital region by imparting basic education, employment skills (Cutting & Tailoring, Embroidery, Basic IT, International Cuisine, Indian Cooking, Housekeeping, English and Soft Skills. ) and entrepreneurship spirit, to better contribute to their family’s support and boost their self-confidence.
Core Values of Kamalini are:
- Genuine care and respect for the dignity of each person
- High-quality training
- Commitment and spirit of service
- Ethical conduct and transparency
- Fostering solidarity & social responsibility
There are about 600 women and young girls from a low-income group in full time courses per year.
Kamalini Vocational Training Centre is a joint initiative of two non-profit organizations: Educational Development Initiatives (a Registered Society) and Protsahan (a Charitable Trust).
Some of the women promoters of Educational and Development Initiatives (EDI), after the experience in one of its projects for unprivileged girls, wanted to create an institution especially dedicated to women. Thus, was born Protsahan Charitable Trust.
In 2007 a MoU was signed between EDI & Protsahan through which EDI would provide management guidance, knowledge sharing and human resources (including volunteers) to Protsahan, and Protsahan on its side would bring beneficiaries, run the training activities for under privileged women and facilitate volunteering programs organized by EDI.
Both organizations have been granted exemption for donors under section 80(G) of the Income Tax Act, and are registered with the Ministry of Home Affairs, with general permission to receive foreign contributions.
