Project Description

PROJECT OBJECTIVES
This project saves commuting time and takes care of transportation problem prevalent in the area , gives convenient learning time as women in rural areas has very limited time available with them, with the responsibility of household chores. 
Addressing the transportation issue allows them to reach to the Centre according to their time and availability and caters to more number of beneficiaries. Along with this, there is 
safety assurance to parents, spouses, siblings as GAMANA will take care of the transportation, particularly to the differently abled trainees and trainees from far off places where public transport is unavailable. 
COMMUNITY/TRAINEES OUTREACH 
GAMANA is continuously providing vocational training to most deprived, vulnerable and difficult to reach sections of school dropout girls/women/disabled with a very strong gender perspective.Aspiration of learning something new apart of the school education of girls/women is fulfilled those who are attending from far off villages and non-transport routes. A nominal fee of Rs. 500 per month per trainee is collecting from girls to meet fuel expenses as we do not have other resources for vehicle maintenance, but the disabled girls are excluded due to their physical and financial status. There was an evidence that many girls drew upon their savings to cover the transportation charges to complete the apprenticeship. While improvements in self-reported skills, girls are exhibited greater improvements in subjective measures of well-being and confidence. Most of the girls showing interest to attend the training program as their parents felt that their daughters are more secured with GAMANA, once they were less able to do so with boys. 
The notion of the parents as vocational training programs are more expensive, less supportive to girls and not as effective as for their male counterparts are positively responding. By tracking down program dropouts, we were able to evaluate individual reasons for dropping out and the differential effects of the program by gender. No girl/woman, particularly the minorities (Muslim community) citing family obligations in transporting as a key reason for not participating in the program . Girls’ participation appears to have been much more increased with vigor and enthusiasm. These results shed light on the more stringent constraints under which poor girls have to make decisions and how these may lead to a prospective training experience. 
The time required to travel to and from the training centre was drastically reduced and the mental peace of the parents was restored.Mobility factors of the disabled were suitably addressed in preventing them from pursuing vocational and technical education opportunities and it has had a very positive effect on their self-image and employable development skills
IMPACT
The trainees felt that the transportation facility has addressed their travel needs and has a significant impact on their lives
Financially, the transportation facility has transformed them from being idle and not having any idea about future to earning money and being a productive resource to the family
Now with skills acquired, they are able to earn money for themselves and their families
