B-ABLE seeks to create an innovative, sustainable model for building a high quality skilled workforce – both in the unorganized and the organized sectors. It provides market-driven, aspiration-based vocational education and training using technology and partnerships. B-ABLE will create a virtuous circle of skilled workers and entrepreneurs mostly from the disadvantaged sections of society, through a system of supporting the youth with education and enterprise loans, and also providing effective real time connects between the job providers and job seekers.
Skill Training for MARGINALIZED YOUTH
The dynamics of employment are fast changing. The employers today are looking for skills more than the knowledge. For youth to be employable, it is important that they enhance their knowledge with relevant skills because at the end of the day it is their skill that will fetch them a job.
Youth make up 25 per cent of the global working-age population; yet their share in total unemployment is 40 per cent. Young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed as adults. Disadvantaged young people are at higher risk of marginalization and social exclusion than other youth.
Skills development is a primary means of enabling young people to make a smooth transition to work. A comprehensive approach is required to integrate young women and men in the labour market, including relevant and quality skills training, labour market information, career guidance and employment services, recognition of prior learning, incorporating entrepreneurship with training and effective skills forecasting. Improved basic education and core work skills are particularly important to enable youth to engage in lifelong learning as well as transition to the labour market.
Skill Training for WOMEN
The women need vocational training or skills to be able to stand on their own feet and become earning members for their families.
Skill development for women is a key to improve household productivity, income generating opportunities and employability. It also helps them to develop a sense of self worth and ability to take control of their own lives. Our society can be benefitted only, when women will get respect with their rights.
- Women empowerment will be converted to:
- Develop broader perception which results in development of society.
- Improve living status of family
- Earning of two members enables better brought up of children
- Create dignified position of women in the society
- Generate sincere workforce in the form of women labours
- Set strong base and examples for future generation
Skill Training for TRANSGENDERS
The prime objective of the project is to assist transgender in improving their existing skills to live a better life and to get more social acceptance and recognition. Seeking to change the lifestyle of the transgenders, B-ABLE thought of providing skill development training to transgender Community people to facilitate self-employment.
The objective of these training programs is Skill Development and Capacity Building of transgender persons who have so far been looking for employment and those who have lacked proper guidance. This initiative is an initiation to better assimilate the transgender persons in employment with the expectation that discrimination and the dishonor attached to being transgender fades away in the society. Along with the se tor specific training participants are trained on various life coping skills and personality development like problem solving, decision making, critical thinking, relationship building and work place etiquette among many other skills. The participants are assisted towards building self-confidence and self-esteem necessary to face the challenges at a work place.
B-ABLE has recently done a project on skilling transgender community in Kolkata, West Bengal. Training is provided to get in depth theoretical and practical knowledge on beauty and wellness course. In the beginning of the course transgender were little hesitant to continue with the training program due to the stigma attached to their gender status. However, as the course continued they found themselves confident and enthusiastic with the course material and session plan.

Skill Training for DOMESTIC WORKERS

The challenge is not merely of preparing more skilled manpower, but also of ensuring employable skills with the view to fill the skill gaps in the industry, whether manufacturing, or service. While there is shortage of skilled manpower in a number of sectors, in Domestic Workers Sector, it is more so. As such concerted effort to develop skills in this sector is inescapable.
