Vocational Training Project
Let’s Bring Change through Education
Hosanna Ministries was founded by Kiron Gaikwad to reach out to poor, ethnic minority rural people in far eastern Maharastra state, India. It began with a children's home called Ankoor, now Gnyan Sampada English School (GSES). The most recent initiative is vocational training on the west coast of Maharastra as well as around GSES. Hosanna Ministries has expanded its work to provide a range of vocational training opportunities for vulnerable women and youth.
The Vocational Training Project provides a range of vocational training opportunities to vulnerable people, including women and youth, in villages in the Yavatmal district (near GSES) and Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The vocational training gives participants skills and confidence to get a job or start up their own business or undertake further education. Participants receive a certificate on completion of their course.
A greater ability to earn income, means that participants can support theirs families financially and socially and take a step toward freedom from poverty.
Hosanna Ministries’ Vocational Training Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP)
