There was an era that witnessed heavy retrenchments for a lack of computer knowledge when the nation transformed from the manual to the digital age. It was then that Deepalaya decided to equip the youth of the most deserving sections of society and the less privileged. This led to Deepalaya Vocational Training Centers at Patel Garden, Gole Kuan, Sanjay Colony and Tilak Nagar. The Centers not only function as computer learning hubs but have become a happening place, for it provides multiple opportunities for personality development. These VTCs were crucial during pandemics in distributing ration kits and community mobilization. Celebration of important days and festivals is a part of its curriculum.

Beauty Culture & Fashion Designing
The Beauty Culture (grooming & wellness) and Fashion Designing program from “Deepalaya’s Project Nari Shakti” is designed to develop the skills and capabilities of girls/women coming from the less-privileged community of society by giving them the skillsets in these two trades. It is evident that due to social limitations and the dominance of patriarchy, women have not had their share in terms of job opportunities or establishing independent businesses. Due to this, most women continue to depend on their husbands and families.
Deepalaya in collaboration with Amway India provides the opportunity to the enrolled girls/women to equip themselves with the required skills. Nutrition Education and Entrepreneurship Programme team up to give them better career avenues. Our certification partner, Vishwa Yuvak Kendra also imparts various life-skill sessions to the students for their overall personality development.
