A matter of great pride for us that 29 young women and men from Gram Vikas’ partner villages will join as Gram Vikas employees in April 2019.
In January 2018, the Gram Vikas Governing Board approved the Community Professionals programme as a key component of the human resources strategy for Gram Vikas Decade V. Under this, young women and men from Gram Vikas’ partner villages and alumni of the Gram Vikas schools will be offered opportunities to work with Gram Vikas. After five years of engagement, these youngsters will be supported to obtain higher education in an area of their interest.
We took the first step towards implementing this plan when we identified youngsters for the conduct of the Status Assessment Survey. In May 2018, 46 men and women joined as SAS volunteers and 41 persons passed through a selection process. We offered 29 of them full-time employment in Gram Vikas starting 1 April 2019.
We hope that these youngsters will form the core of Gram Vikas’ human resources in the coming years.
