Livelihood Development

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. – Chinese Proverb

Parinaam has multiple initiatives in the area of livelihood development. We are continually researching new partnerships that will enable the women and/or their family members to become productively engaged. We perform due diligence on the partner organization and their services to assess the benefits to our members before we bring the offer to them. Listed below are some of the current tie-ups we have in this area.

Unnati is a vocational training institute that provides free training and job placements for school drop outs in a range of professions. The three month rigorous training includes conversational English classes, basic computer and life skills. Students can specialize in various courses including BPO services, retail services, driving, industrial painting, guest care, security services and industrial tailoring. They are guaranteed job placement in a formal sector company at the end of the course.

We counsel the parents and the children on what will be a good fit; fill and submit their applications; guide them through the two day interview process and provide moral support throughout the course.

MetaMorph Learning provides training and job placement for unemployed youth in the retail sector. Parinaam has recently begun working with them to link our customers' children who are seeking employment with MetaMorph. We counsel them about the training and placement services provided.
