In our ongoing commitment to nation-building through skill development for rural youth, our initiative, SDC Khurja, endeavors each year to empower hundreds of young individuals with employable skills. The ultimate goal is to enable them to carve out meaningful and dignified lives, transforming them into valuable contributors to society.
On September 30, 2023, the 4th Certificate Distribution Ceremony took place at SDC Khurja. Over 250 trainees from various courses offered at the center were honoured with course completion certificates, marking their eligibility to pursue professional careers. As part of the celebration, a Fashion Show showcased the creativity of MasterG Fashion Designing Course graduates, who confidently walked the ramp adorned in self-designed attire. This tradition, followed since the inception of the course, provides trainees with a captivating glimpse into the glamorous world of fashion.
The event was graced by Shri Chandra Prakash Singh, District Magistrate, Bulandshahr, U.P., who served as the Chief Guest. Mr. Rahul Gautam, Managing Director and Chairman, Sheela Foam Ltd., Lt Gen (Dr.) V K Ahluwalia, PVSM, AVSM**, YSM, VSM (Retd), Former GOC-in-C, Central Command, Ms. Gayatri Jolly, Founder of MasterG And Daughters, Mr. Sharad Sharma, CEO of OISPL, Ms. Simii Kocchar, CEO & Founder, KAM Training Services, Ms. Ankita Mohanty, Partnership Manager, NIIT Foundation, Smt. Monika Singh, Gram Pramukh, Khurja Administration and other dignitaries were also present at the ceremony.
A significant highlight of the ceremony was the felicitation of the Agniveers. Thirteen out of 25 trainees, including one female from our center, were recruited under the Agniveer scheme—an achievement that positions SDC as a center for excellence.
At SDC, our active contribution aims to equip rural youth with the skills and integrity necessary to navigate the challenges of the world and thrive. We remain hopeful that these empowered youth will one day achieve success in their lives, becoming integral contributors to the progress of our nation.
