Jan-Daksha Trust traveled to the Bhilurana Slums to organize a career counseling camp with 23 of the area’s unemployed girls and women. The camp sought to inform the women about new employment opportunities afforded by Jan-Daksha’s vocational trainings. Alongside this information, the camp notified attendees who had dropped out of school about continuing their education at Open University. As a result, 8 of the young women registered for beautician training, 4 opted to enroll at university, and 8 more opted for direct job placement.
Jan-Daksha Trust set up a career counseling camp with the young female workers of Hawamagri Sukher, with the intention of providing the uneducated youth with skill training that could expand the scope of their employment opportunities. In this event, led by Jan-Daksha secretary Alka Vyas, over 28 young women participated in various discussions about how to prepare for entry into the labour market. From these discussions, Jan-Daksha learned that many of those in attendance could not secure the jobs they wanted because of a lack of education. Also, many of the young labourers could not afford the vocational training necessary to find other employment. The Jan-Daksha staff ultimately referred the attendees to the counseling center, as well as career training services and even placement in various jobs.
