A national initiative intends to turn homemakers from Northeast as entrepreneurs.

Yes, the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Britania industries have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with this effect in New Delhi recently.

Turing Home Maker into Entrepreneur is, in fact, a joint collaboration between NSDC and Britania industries.

“We are already working in several projects involving women from northeast…we will turn them as entrepreneurs,” said NSDC CEO Manish Kumar.

Officials said that the process is India’s first-ever skill development program customized for women with entrepreneurial aspirations.

10,000 women homemakers from across the country will undergo this online certification course between April and June 2020.

The online training touches upon all key levers of entrepreneurship.

The online courses will be available through NSDC’s eSkillIndia portal that drives the Government of India‘s Skill India Mission digitally.

The e-courses will empower women to gain basic communication skills, financial literacy along with information and communication technology (ICT), and micro-entrepreneurial skills for socio-economic self-reliance.

The online nature of the training provides easy access to the courses from the comfort of their homes across the country.

The primary aim is to train women on key functional skills to boost their confidence at the start of their entrepreneurial journey.

The training program will be available in two languages – English and Hindi.

The digital skilling content will be supported by formative and summative assessments, and eCertification will be awarded to the participants upon successful completion of the course.
