Project Description

The Company has spent some amount in BRIDGE Skill development and employability enhancement for underprivileged youth and capacity building and training. One of the biggest challenges in scaling up vocational training initiatives in India is the shortage of trained trainers. To address this gap, Bosch has designed an exclusive ‘Train the Trainer (TTT)’ program, which covers: Student Mobilsation, BRIDGE Modules Delivery, Counseling Skills, Placement Process, Bosch Qualification for Trainers, More than 200 trainers have been already trained. Bosch has developed a successful PPP model through the BRIDGE Program. Three State Governments have joined hands with Bosch to support the BRIDGE Program, namely the Governments of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. As per the MoUs signed with them by Bosch, 88 Government I.T.I.s serve as BRIDGE Centers where the program is conducted. In turn, Bosch upgrades these I.T.I.s to make their curriculum more industry-relevant, train their vocational trainers, and provide industry exposure to select students, besides setting up a Bosch Technical Lab in each of these I.T.I.s. The objective of this job-oriented program is to utilise Bosch’s already established skills development competence to deliver a unique vocational training model for making underprivileged children employable, thereby providing a pool of high quality skilled manpower, mainly to the services industry. The Company has spent some amount of money for helping the girls to gain wider knowledge and skills to face challenges and feel motivated to continue in schools, build confidence and self esteem to raise voices to resist pressures against marriage at an early age, to enhance parental and community support to keep girls in schools and promote higher education, through delayed marriages, to instigate scientific thought in them including logical and reasoning skills, to improve girls’ knowledge about sexual and reproductive health, training self defence mechanism and improve their access to services. Bosch has agreed to sponsor the construction of a centralized mid-day meal Kitchen, which will be based in Jigani at Anekal Taluk, Karnataka. The kitchen, to be built on Cauldron technology, aims to provide mid-day meals to 15,000 children (to be extended up to 30,000 children) in Bidadi as well as in schools situated around Anekal Taluk. For many children, who would have to work for a square meal every day, the food from this Kitchen will come as a boon not only because they can satiate their hunger but also because they get an opportunity to access education.
