Parinaam gives importance to vocational training and livelihood programs as this will enable a family to have an extra source of income giving them a chance to manage their finances better. It also encourages mothers to ensure that the children who have dropped out of school or not working add a skill set that will help them get a job. There are scores of unemployed and unskilled candidates finding it difficult to either get jobs or have access to quality training programs. Yet livelihoods and vocational training are our most difficult programs in terms of attrition and success rate. We try to support our beneficiaries by counselling, mentoring and giving them access to jobs and training that could change their lives forever.

We network and partner with organizations after extensive research and due diligence to ensure that the companies and organizations not only give our beneficiaries the opportunity and provide quality training but also understand their unique and difficult backgrounds, by treating them fairly. Parinaam does not take placement fees from the companies nor do we charge our beneficiaries for any of the services provided to them. We understand progress will be slow and attrition high, but for us it is clear that the people we manage to help makes it worth the effort.
