Grohe has opened its second training workshop for disadvantaged youths in India.
The new training facility, in New Delhi’s Okhla area, was opened on May 19 in collaboration with Don Bosco and Don Bosco Mondo e.V.
The partnership offers high-quality sanitary training to youths in emerging economies. The courses combine practical training with classroom-based elements and are geared to meet the specific needs and conditions of the individual countries. Graduates also receive a recognised certificate.
Students acquire communication, English language and computing skills while also attending placements with local firms, which often introduce participants to their future employers.
To date, Grohe Dual Tech has achieved a placement rate of almost 100% and more than 800 young people have successfully completed their training course and found employment.
Grohe board member Michael Mager said: “I am very proud of what Don Bosco Mondo and Grohe have jointly achieve, since launching our pilot project here in India in 2009. Our scheme based on the idea of youth empowerment through vocational training and qualification has turned out to be a complete success. It offers students the prospect of future-proof employment and, to date, all graduates have successfully entered the workforce. This result has far exceeded my original expectations.”
The programme currently has three sites – Mumbai-Kurla (India), Manila-Tondo (Philippines), and New Delhi (India). Plans are currently under way for another workshop in Egypt.
