Jaquar Foundation is a division of Jaquar Group, a leader in complete bathing solution, formed with a mission to continuously spearhead CSR related initiatives under Swachh, Swastha Avam Sikshit Bharat which signifies Sanitation, Health and Education.
I.) Education (Skill Development Initiative)
Jaquar has observed that the gap between demand and supply for skilled worker is gradually increasing; plumbing is one such skill set with huge gap. The need for plumber is not only for maintenance & repair of products/pipe line but also for installation during construction. The poised growth of real estate needs to be complemented for availability of skilled manpower. It is important to note that plumbing skill used is not only restricted to water but for gas and oil also. With over 54 year experience in bathing industry, Jaquar under its CSR initiative decided to undertake plumber training. The objective is to train unemployed youth in specialized skill sets and develop them as a trained plumber. This would not only help them to generate enough for their livelihood but will contribute in make in India initiative. The training will encompass teaching on safety measures, tools & its use, type of water resources, type of pipes & its uses, piping fittings, bathing fittings (including modern fixtures) , green house norms and water discharge.
The training will be on 80-20 concept; 20% of theory & 80% of practical. Under the skill development initiative of Hon’ble Prime Minister, the program SEWAK is under taking plumbing skill training through association with Jaquar Foundation, Gurgaon. Unemployed youths with even qualification of 8th class are enrolled under this program. This training program would be of six months that includes three month field training and 3 months class room training. For the initiative, DC Gurgaon office has allocated Jaquar land measuring approx 3000 sq. ft. at Vikas Sadan (Gurgaon) for constructing a big training centre with the provision of further expansion i.e. 1st and 2nd floor; which will subject to need. We are confident that the new building will ready in a time span of appx. 4 months. Initially the training centre will be used for plumbing skill training. Upon completion of 3 months classroom training, on-the-job training will be imparted with the help of DRDA.
Later, apart from the plumbing training, the centre will be utilized for training other skills too such as refrigeration & air-conditioning, mobile phone repairing, domestic electrical installations & repair. Jaquar is pleased to share that first batch of 10 students for plumbing training has been started since March’15 in the existing building named SEWAK at Vikas Sadan. Jaquar is also partnering with other organizations in the country for taking forward plumbing skill development in other parts of the country. Jaquar Foundation has also adopted almost 100 needy students at different schools in Delhi and Chandigarh for support required for their education. Based on the guidance and direction of District Magistrate - Noida, Jaquar Foundation has also agreed to adopt 10 schools where 2000 underprivileged students will be extend all necessary support required for their study.
