Wagons Skill Foundation Initiatives will empower all individuals through improved skills, knowledge, nationally and internationally recognized qualifications to gain access to decent employment and ensure India’s competitiveness in the global market.
Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development for any country. Countries with higher and better levels of skills adjust more effectively to the challenges and opportunities of world of work.
Major challenge of skill development initiatives is also to address the needs of huge population by providing skills in order to make them employable and help them secure decent work. Skill development for persons working in the unorganized sector is a key strategy in that direction. This will also inculcate dignity of labour and create greater awareness towards environmental, safety and health concerns.
Skill building can be viewed as an instrument to improve the effectiveness and contribution of labor to the overall production. It is as an important ingredient to push the production possibility frontier outward and to take growth rate of the economy to a higher trajectory. Skill building could also be seen as an instrument to empower the individual and improve his/her social acceptance or value.
Wagons Learning – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Our CSR initiative as commitment of business to contribute for sustainable economic development, aims at creating higher standards of living, while preserving profitability of the corporation. The traditional Artisans like Carpenters, Blacksmiths, Goldsmiths, Copper/Bronze smiths, Masons, Stone workers, Bamboo/Cane workers, Potters, Cobblers etc, constitute the vast chunk of labour in the unorganized sector of the Indian economy. Other than inherited skill, these artisans possess neither formal education nor income-generating assets. Besides poverty, these groups are also victims of social and economic exclusion, since there is hardly any national initiative for their inclusive development.
"Wagons Skill Foundation" Objectives
Wagons Skill Foundation aims at enhancing the employability / self employment of artisans in construction, maintenance, repairs, industry (small, medium and micro) and production of utility items, in terms of skill development training. Since majority of them continue to work with less productive low-value hand/traditional tools, apart from skill development training, they need to be fully exposed to more productive high-value power tools also for fast operations and better productivity.
