Safeducate has launched the 2nd phase of Container School training program, where classrooms are made out of recycled containers to be used as skill development centres. The program launched in 2015 has trained over 35,000 students from Tier 3 and rural India in two years.

The second phase of the Container School Program is aimed at expanding its geographical reach and increase the base of beneficiaries to 70,000, more than double its current strength. The innovative concept of converting recycled containers into classrooms and practical labs will greatly bring down the cost and effort involved in developing infrastructure to meet the skilling needs of people. The modular nature of these containers means that they can be disassembled and reinstalled in another location, whenever needed. 

Over the past 2 years, training is being conducted across 20 locations including Nagpur, Ahmedabad, Dhule, Sawai Madhopur and Jamshedpur.

On the launch of the model school at Binola, MoRD Skill Minister Shri Kamran Rizvi said, “The youth from the rural areas, is uninformed of the new job opportunities emerging in fields such as electronics, telecom, agriculture, tourism, hospitality, BFSI, retail and healthcare. 

Safeducate’s innovation of Container School Program helps provide appropriate training and skills to fight unemployment. We support them in their expansion plan as it prepares the youth to get better acclimatized to the actual working conditions of the industry.”

Divya Jain, Founder and CEO Safeducate said, “As a social enterprise, Safeducate trains the students for different job roles in logistics, retail, and e-commerce companies. The container school outreach initiative helps us to render high-quality skill training in even the remotest areas in the country. The containers can be converted into classrooms, restrooms, computer labs, libraries, dormitories, simulation labs, office spaces, receptions mapped according to the skill requirements and needs of the region to create a complete training centre.”

The initiative is being part-funded by the Skill Development Ministry under the aegis of the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana and Skill India Mission.
