Capacity building is nothing but the Planned development of (or increase in) knowledge, output rate, management, skills, and other capabilities of an organization through acquisition, incentives, technology, and/or training.

  • Placement Linked Skill Development

There is a compelling need to launch a world class skill development programme in Mission mode that will address the challenge of imparting the skills required by a growing economy. Both the structure and the leadership of the Mission must be such that the programme can be scaled up quickly to cover the whole country."
The basic objective of the programme is to contribute significantly (about 30 per cent) to the overall target of skilling / up skilling 500 million people in India by 2022, mainly by fostering private sector initiatives in skill development programmes. Secondly to upgrade skills to international standards through significant industry involvement and develop necessary frameworks for standards, curriculum and quality assurance. Thirdly focus on underprivileged sections of society and backward regions of the country thereby enabling a move out of poverty; similarly, focus significantly on the unorganized or informal sector workforce and prioritize initiatives that can have a multiplier or catalytic effect as opposed to one-off impact
Keeping in view the above, MISSION has been imparting market linked job oriented skill trainings on various trades such as sewing machine operator, computer application, security guard, hospitality, BPO etc.

The objective of each Special Projects for Skill Development would be to ensure a time-bound training and capacity building programme for bringing a specific number of Below Poverty Line (BPL) families above the poverty line through placement ensuring regular wage employment. Salient Features of this programme follow. These programmes were aimed at delivery of training, largely through the government machinery, supported by some civil society participants. Under special project component of SGSY, placement linked skill  development programme was taken up on pilot basis through public private partnership (PPP). In view of success of the pilot projects, efforts have been made to up scale the skill development programme as it was felt that regular wage employment to at least one member of rural BPL family will enable it to come out of poverty. In this perspective, MORD has made concerted efforts in bringing about paradigm shifts in the delivery mechanism and in involving industry stakeholders, besides strengthening the process through output linked support. MORD has so far assisted several PPP or private sector led initiatives emanating from industry, civil society organizations etc. 
In this context MISSION has been associated with EVERONN Skill Development Ltd, Larus Edutech Ltd etc for implement the SGSY scheme at Dhenaknal & Deogarh districts of Odisha. Under this scheme residential training for 200 candidates separately for boys & girls were organized on Sewing machine Operator, Turner, Welder, Fitter, Retail management etc. After successful completion of the training candidates were provided with Placement Support or Jobs at different companies, factories etc. Preference given to SC & St candidates at the time of selection of beneficiaries.
