Skill development through MANAS

New Delhi: Najma Heptulla, the Union Minister for Minority Affairs launched innovative entrepreneurship and skill development programme of Maulana Azad National Academy for Skills (MANAS) – through leading national and international experts in different skill sets here today. She also inaugurated online two training centres of Beauty & Wellness Sector, one in Okhla and another in Daryaganj area. In Okhla Jawed Habib known for impetus to revolutionize the art of styling in India will provide scientific and systematic training to the aspirants wishing to pursue a career in cosmetology. Shahnaz Hussain will impart training to aspirants at Daryaganj centre in the area of natural care and cure. Speaking on the occasion, Najma Heptullah said that it is the desire and striving for excellence in any field of activity that brings recognition to the practitioner and establishes the dignity of labour.

Under a unique and first time initiative, MANAS has come up with an innovative scheme under which it proposes to use such leading celebrities in various skill sets as the driving force behind the skill development projects, in their respective fields, for the benefit of marginalised sections of minority communities. There are a large number of leading experts in different trades who belong to minority communities. By using the expertise and stature of leading experts in different trades in their respective fields, for the benefit of marginalised sections of their communities and also for the society at large, by supporting the cause of skill development  in their own areas of expertise, MANAS aims to bring significant change in skill development.

Traditional educational institutions of minorities like Madrasas, Maktabs and others, have been linked to Skill Development Programme of Ministry of Minority Affairs (MOMA) through Maulana Azad National Academy for Skills. By this path-breaking initiative, MOMA can utilize vast potential of existing network of Madrasa and Maktabs by opening Skill Development Centres in Madrasa with the consent of Madrasa. Apart from bridging the trust deficit of the minority communities, MANAS has been able to provide door-step access to quality skill development training to marginalised sections of minority communities particularly to women and girl child, for providing them gainful employment and self-employment. MANAS has identified and launched Skill Development Programme in various Madarsas and other traditional educational institutions of minorities in the states of Bihar, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir and Assam.

Maulana Azad National academy for Skills (MANAS) was established under the aegis of Ministry of Minority Affairs (MOMA) by National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (NMDFC) on 11th November, 2014, in order to fulfill the vision of “Skill India” and also achieve the over-riding goal of the Government of India “Sabka Saath – Sabka Vikas”, MANAS provides an institutional arrangement to meet all Skill Development and Up-gradation needs of the minority communities in the country.
