The skills development programme of ENLIVE is targeted at skilling people to increase their employability. Over a period of 4 years, Taraa Gurunath, under the guidance of Mr.D.Muruganandam - President (Operations) of the company introduced a concept of creating sustainable employment in the lowest section of villages that would have a ripple effect in society where multiple micro-entrepreneurs would be created.
The broad contours of the project first included the selection of skills with maximum impact on society keeping in mind, economic parity. These skills included driving, tailoring, repair of cell phones and computer classes. The main aim was to provide vocational, job-specific training that would guide the person on his or her path to becoming a micro- entrepreneur. In the manufacturing sector, the blue-collared workforce is plunged in a cyclical process whereby, due to lack of opportunities, the posterity continues to engage in blue-collared work. However, this occupational training gives them an opportunity to break away from this cycle due to the increased income that it generates. The blue-collared workforce also predominantly consists of men. The skills development programme hence aims at economic empowerment of women by providing an opportunity for them to explore financial independence.
