Soft Skill Development and Empowerment Program
SIBC conducted a module for development of soft skills and conversational English for a group of 28 girl school dropouts for over a fortnight in September 2015 to enhance the opportunities for a sustainable livelihood for these girls. Sessions on spoken English, numeracy, conversational skills, business promotion, grooming and etiquette were conducted over ten sessions. A session on sexual and reproductive health was also conducted to educate them on the importance of hygiene and preventive care measures. The module ended with a farewell function wherein each girl was presented with a formal set of clothing and a hygiene kit. Soroptimists Dr. Daphne Pillai, Dr. Celina Joy, Ms. Yvette Lee and Ms. Namrata Saxena were part of this initiative.
