Skill training for youths starts at Aida center
Dimapur, May 23 (EMN): A training programme for unemployed youths was inaugurated at the Don Bosco Tech Aida Center on May 22.
Rev. I Wati, senior pastor of the Dimapur Ao Baptist Church was the special guest of the event.
The Don Bosco Tech Aida Center issued a press release to the media on Thursday informing about the event.
The programme was stated to be for the center’s 29th batch.
Addressing the gathering, Rev. Wati was stated to have urged the trainees to work hard for God to bless them.
“We need to find out the purpose of our life. If not, we will not be able to live meaningfully in this world,” the press release quoted him as having told the youths.
“You may not have what others have in terms of skill, knowledge, etc. but to God nothing is small in his eyes. If you try best and continue to work hard God will make you a successful person one day.”
The pastor also reminded them that modernity was not in technology: “Having a mobile or any other equipment does not help anyone, but one should have the knowledge and skill to use that.
So too it is skill and knowledge that will help you to live your future well,” the church leader told them.
Also, placement coordinator Anita Kapuh talked about the skill development programme. It was started in 2010 for the less educated, unemployed youths, she said.
Kapuh informed the gathering that Don Bosco Tech at Dimapur has trained 11,500 youths and placed 8,461 of them.
“Though our candidates are with low education qualification we have been able to place them in reputed companies across the country.”
’19 alumni of Don Bsoco Tech Aida center are working abroad in various international hotels, cruise lines and airlines,’ she added.
Kapuh encouraged the trainees to “move out of comfort zone and face challenges,” the press release informed.
The trainees treated the audience to folk dances and folk music, the updates stated.
The training programme for the 29th batch started on April 23 this year with 52 trainees from various communities in the Northeast region, the press release stated.
The Don Bosco Tech Aida Center offers training in fields such as hospitality, food and beverage industry, and beauty, the updates stated.
