Govt of Jharkhand and PanIIT Foundation partner to launch PReJHA Foundation

This initiative will replicate the Gurukul model of learning for skill development across all the districts of the state and thus provide a network of sub-ITI institutions accessible to schools drop-outs, underprivileged and those who are from the lower strata of the socio economic background.

Department of Welfare, Government of Jharkhand and PanIIT Alumni Reach for India Foundation have partnered to launch PanIIT Alumni Reach for Jharkhand Foundation (PReJha Foundation) a non-profit joint enterprise to implement and scale sustainable welfare initiatives.

This initiative will replicate the Gurukul model of learning for skill development across all the districts of the state and thus provide a network of sub-ITI institutions accessible to schools drop-outs, underprivileged and those who are from the lower strata of the socio economic background.

The PReJHA Foundation was launched by Raghubar Das, the Honourable Chief Minister of Jharkhand. Present at the launch were Dr. Louis Marandi – Honourable Welfare Minister, Jharkhand and B. Muthuraman– Chairman, PanIIT Alumni Reach for Jharkhand Foundation.  Also on display was use of ‘Immersive technologies for learning’ showcasing latest simulation, virtual reality and augmented reality technologies for learning and skill development.

Gurukul is already present in Jharkhand across various locations including Gumla, Jamshedpur, Bundu, East &West Singhbum, Simdega, Koderma, Saraikela, Dumka, Palamu and Hazaribagh, working towards skilling and providing sustainable employment to the unskilled and unemployed.

Speaking on the occasion, Raghubar Das – Honourable Chief Minister, Jharkhand said, “Our youth are our strength and it is important to provide them with the requisite skills that will make them employable. The purpose of PReJHA foundation is to bridge the skill gap and ensure sustainable employment, thus improving the socio economic status of our people”. He added “I am very happy to see that PanIIT partner with Department of Welfare to open skill training Gurukuls in every district, which will give an opportunity to the tribals, the underprivileged and those below the poverty line to gain skill development that will make them employable and make Jharkhand proud of them.”

Dr. Louis Marandi – Honourable Welfare Minister, Jharkhand, said “Skill India is a focus area of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi as well as of the honourable chief Minister Shri.Raghubar Das. Sustainable welfare initiatives are a focus area of the government and this partnership is another milestone towards creating sustainable growth by focusing on creating skilled manpower who will be employable by the industry.” She added “PreJha foundation will focus on creating skilled and employable manpower”

Amit Khare, Development Commissioner and Additional Chief Secretary, Planning and Finance, Government of Jharkhand said, “I appeal to all the Private sector organizations that they partner with this initiative and support the youth in their training by giving them employment. I am sure this initiative will bridge the skill gap and also the employment gap.”

B. Muthuraman – Chairman, PReJHA foundation said “The focus is to not just to skill people but also provide employment. The industry needs skilled manpower and we partner with them even before enrolling the students into the course. The Gurukul model adopted by PanIIT Foundation is unique and people are skilled to meet the industry requirements.” He added, “We are enthused with this partnership as we see ample opportunities to develop skills and create employments across Jharkhand including economically weaker and backward areas.”
PanIIT has been working towards skilling using the Gurukul model, a residential, fit-for-purpose training in technical skills in sectors like construction, manufacturing, medical services and logistics. The emphasis is on practical experience for enhancing productivity, imbibing quality and ensuring safety. Training is imparted using latest technologies including simulators to create worksite like infrastructure.

Gurukul is typically led by ex-servicemen, seek to infuse patriotic values and life skills, including discipline, financial and credit literacy, in addition to technical training. Even before Gurukul is setup, PanIIT contracts with employers, typically CII members, for technically skilled jobs, to assure placements in India and abroad. Hence, jobs are waiting for students even before they enrol in this demand led training model. Apart from partnering with NSDC, PanIIT in addition has joined hands with industry and government bodies such as CII and NABARD. NABARD provides 100% financing to the students of the Gurukul through Nabard financial Services, its NBFC subsidiary. HPCL, Godrej Industries and Thriveni Earthmovers are CSR Gurukul patrons.

IIT Alumni network to train underprivileged youth, focus in Agriculture sector

The alumni network of the premier institution has been running a PanIIT Alumni Reach for India Foundation (PARFI), which they call Gurukul.

After successfully training over 8,000 youth and getting them placed in various sectors in the skill industry, the alumni network of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is looking to open more skill training centres across the country.

The alumni network of the premier institution has been running a PanIIT Alumni Reach for India Foundation (PARFI), which they call Gurukul. Young men and women from underprivileged families receive training in various technical skills like construction, medical services, logistics, electrical and others in these Gurukuls and get assured placements.

Getting a push with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Skill India programme, the foundation is looking at expanding themselves in a bigger way now. PARFI had so far been actively working with Jharkhand government and Tamil Nadu government. After their success, the foundation is now in talks with other state governments as well and are looking to explore possibilities in Agriculture sector in states like Punjab, UP and Haryana.

PARFI is a demand-led training model by which the members of the foundation train students according to the demands of the industry. Even before the students are admitted in Gurukul, the members of the association conduct their research in the industry and train students accordingly in the required skills.

The infrastructure support is provided by the government and teachers and training is provided by the institute, which runs on a loan-based model for students. The students get loans from NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development), which they have to repay after they get a job.

“We want to expand our centres as there is tremendous scope in a lot of fields like Agriculture in various parts of India. New technology is coming in the field which people are not aware about and the industry needs skilled people who are well-equipped with the new technology. This is where we can come in and train the youth to be employable,” said Ashank Desai, Co-Chairman PARFI.

“Our idea is to meet the demand for skilled youth, for which we need to train them in the way industry wants. The industry is changing and there is more use of technology is each sector now,” he adds.

The foundation has started a pre-construction training centre where certain parts of a building are built at the centre and then assembled at the construction site. This is one of its kind training imparted by trainers at PARFI and is one of the ways in which the foundation is keeping pace with the rising demands of skill industry.
