FOR FUTURE GENERATION
The training program was one of the components of the scheme; keeping in view the size of the project it was kept smaller in size. It was considered to have 4 trainees for a period of six months. However the initial inductees from the Hindu community didn’t continue, the major concern on their part was the amount of stipend. Thus the search for the trainees on the Island and in Kara-chi was initiated, among the disadvantageous communities. The new inductees showed considerable interest. Their en-thusiastic participation compelled the project team to allow the continuation for the longer period. And the size of the program was expanded. By the time the training component was culminated the 32 number of Trainees benifitted from the project. Few of the trainees were taken up on other projects as interns and were employed. Four of them were employed on the VarunDevMandir Project as semi-skilled workers, as they showed better understanding of the conservation works, and were more careful in handling the assignments. One of the trainees was taken up as master craftsperson as he had shown remarkable progress. By the time the Project came to its completion majority of the trainees end up on earning jobs.
