The Army Skill Training Centre today handed over certificates to 180 Army wives and wards, who completed their training under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).
The certificates were presented by Army chief Gen. Bipin Rawat's wife and Army Wives Welfare Association (AWWA) president Madhulika Rawat at the second skill certification ceremony here.
"Our efforts are for empowerment of women in real sense. Every day, we are trying to make a better future under different programmes run by the government and AWWA," Rawat said.
The centre runs aspiration-based skill courses for Army spouses and wards in four categories -- data entry operator, assistant beauty therapist, sewing machine operator and block printing.
These skill courses are conducted under the guidelines of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and are promulgated through the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
The initiative aims at enabling and empowering Army spouses, wards and widows with care, compassion and empathy to enhance their true self-worth and become an integral part of the nation's skilled human resource, a statement said.
