Why should a corporate partner with organization?

We constantly tried to remove the social and economic barriers faced by girls in the intervention villages of GAMANA for fulfilling their livelihood ambitions. There is a dire need to reach out to educate the school-going girls and empower school dropout girls to combat the numerous costs, social stigma and the safety concerns of rural parents sending their girls to distant places for employment.
GAMANA have flexible strategies, which are especially appropriate for enabling access to training and improved life prospects when working with disabled and disadvantaged girls. However, there is clarity about the distinguishing characteristics of vocational training overall and where exactly measures like improved basic education, occupational orientation, life-skills training or job-entry coaching fit into vocational training.
GAMANA has therefore decided to create an orientation framework describing the vocational training with its specific characteristics and the orientation towards the ‘promotion of competences for the labour market’. This vocational training strategy should explicitly incorporate the flexibility that has made the partners’ work so successful until now.
With regard to improving our concrete approaches to vocational training, we are seeking more dialogue with the Corporate Sector and its vocational training partners in concrete terms; a presentation of these results would be planned for 2020-2022.
