Support General Duty Attendant (GDA) training project to serve Healthcare industry

Rationale - Lack of skills and proper education, people are forced to undertake menial jobs in informal economy in dire labor conditions. KHUSHII in its endeavor of providing Shiksha aur Vikas (Education and Development) supports various vocations under Kala project to help urban poor to bridge the skill gap and provide them economic empowerment. We all know that healthcare sector in India is growing rapidly and is experiencing an increase in demand for human resources across different verticals. As far as the demand of healthcare professionals is concerned, technicians and the paramedics account for over 75% of the increasing human resource recruitment. That's exactly when professionals like General Duty Attendants (GDA) are high in demand. They work in hospitals, nursing homes, residential care facilities and other medical health avenues under the supervision of nursing and medical staff. They attend to the personal hygiene requirements of patients during treatment. This clearly shows that there is sufficient scope of growth in the career of a GDA. Beneficiary profile - Project Location: Resettlement colonies of Mukundpur and Sangam Vihar in Delhi.
