In previous years ACF had involved in various types of skill development training program associated with the livelihood of rural youths. In 2010 ACF had promoted a skill development training institute under the umbrella of Skill and Entrepreneurship Development Institute (SEDI) to serve a large section of society.
We would like to introduce ourselves as the promoter of a Skill and Entrepreneur Development Institute (SEDI) at Jail Road Amarwara dist Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh since 2010. The main objective of SEDI is to impart employable skills to the local unemployed youth to make them employable. We feel there is a huge requirement for the skilled workforce in industries, in service organization, in trading, sales and IT sector. At present only 5% of the unemployed youth are skilled workers and we all are in desperate need of a work force that has trained to meet our special requirements. So don’t you think employing the right kind of person for the right job is a service to the mankind?
