Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, recently inaugurated India’s first container school created by Safeducate at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi, while unveiling his ‘Skill India Programme’.
Under this programme, the Government intends to skill 40.2 crore people by 2022. The Prime Minister visited the Safeducate Container School set up at Vigyan Bhawan premises and congratulated Safeducate on its innovation. Safeducate; the education and training arm of supply chain and logistics industry leader, Safexpress; has created an extremely innovative model for imparting skills to the people, which can be very easily and quickly replicated to any location in India. This initiative by Safeducate could help the Government provide high quality skill training at even the remotest areas in the country.
Inaugurating the Safeducate Container School, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship in the Government of India, said, “Safeducate has introduced an innovation which will revolutionise the way skill training is imparted in the country. By launching India’s first container school, Safeducate has set an example in the field of skill training. It is difficult to provide training to the youths in the rural areas of the country, where there is minimum availability of infrastructure and resources. By bringing down the cost and efforts involved in developing infrastructure to meet education and skilling needs of people in India, this unique training platform will aid in providing quality education to the youths present in the remotest location of the country. This will definitely make a significant difference at the grassroots level.”
Showcasing the container school, Divya Jain, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Safeducate, said, “We have created the Safeducate Container School with a very high visual appeal so as to attract people even in remote areas. These schools have a very professional look and feel and are equipped with all the amenities present in a regular school, if not more. These schools will provide Safeducate the ability to conduct training at any location across India, where skilling is needed. This school can be set up anywhere in a short time, with just the availability of land and electricity connection. The educational format and structure of these schools is such that each district in the country will have the same level of access to quality education. Safeducate Container Schools will help in creating job opportunities across the country, while creating skilled workforce for the industry.”
