Kudumbashree launched ARISE (Acquiring Resilience and Identity through Self Employment), the state level campaign for extending skill training. The campaign was launched at Thiruvananthapuram on 15 December 2015. The poster of the ARISE campaign was launched by Shri. A.C Moideen, Minister for Local Self Governments, Government of Kerala by giving to Shri S. Harikishore IAS, Exective Director, Kudumbashree Mission. The campaign aims at extending skill training to 50,000 flood affected families, thereby equipping them for paid employment. The campaign mainly aims at helping them in attaining resilience.
Those who reside in the non flood affected areas can also become part of the skill training programme. The tenure of the training programme will be 3 months. Interested men from Kudumbashree families can also become part of the programme. Along with helping people to start individual-group enterprises the campaign also aims at strengthening the micro enterprise sector of Kudumbashree. A survey was conducted using Kudumbashree Block Coordinators for finding out the sectors in which NHG women are interested. It was found that data entry, plumping, electronic repairing, electrical works, agriculture related jobs, laundry, ironing, sales, housekeeping, day care etc are the sectors in which they are interested. It was understood that by extending training they could get an income of their own which would help in eradicating their poverty.
The campaign activities are started in all districts, As per this, those who register will be given skill training. Interested people may make registrations at their respective CDSs from 15 December 2018- 1 January 2019. The training will be conducted during 1 Jan 2019 to 31 March 2019. The skill training would be extended through Government accredited training agencies and empanelled training agencies.
