Guyana: Meera Narine, Chairman of the Essequibo (a youth organization of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha) states that camps have successfully lured youth in a very large number and every Naujawan is pleased and happy with this accomplishment.

She further adds that when they began with the program the strength was very low, some 20 to 40 people, but as it gained recognition and popularity, it caught speed and now more than 60 youths are engaged on Sundays. She also wants to motivate and persuade the guardians to let their children out.

More than 60 youths showed up at different temples all around the region on Sunday. A 1-day camp was organized at the Affiance Mandir in which two youth marked their presence. The camp started with prayers followed by some useful talks regarding career in addition to some fun games and exercises.

Youths also participated in Chowtaal singing and were busy getting their minds ready for Holi which is towards the end of this month. Moreover, Hanuman Chalisa, as well as Gayatri Mantra, were chanted.

Pandit Kaydar Persaud, President, Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, Essequibo Coast Praant, utilized this occasion to motivate youths to bring positivity in them and continue participating in camps like this.

He requested them to indulge themselves in sports activities, reading and visiting temples.

Towards the closure of the camp, youths were grateful to Naujawan for arranging the event. They appreciated their efforts and enjoyed all the activities.

Camps like these will be organized every month with an objective of active youth participation. (Inputs from guyanatimesgy.com)

Social media giant Facebook on Tuesday entered into a strategic partnership with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to empower youth and entrepreneurs with digital skills in India.

The partnership, signed in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, will enable Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) to incorporate Facebook’s training on Digital Marketing Skills in its courses, besides providing trainees with access to local, domestic and international markets.

The programme includes courses on Digital Marketing, Online Safety and Financial Literacy in regional languages with Facebook imparting training to people nominated by the NSDC. This will up-skill job seekers and increase their prospects of employment.

“We are delighted to partner with the National Skill Development Corporation to help in upskilling the youth of the country and also empower local businesses by providing training and resources to build up a digital presence and grow their businesses beyond what the traditional offline economies offer,” Ankhi Das, Public Policy Director, India, South and Central Asia – Facebook, said in a statement.

“This skilled workforce and successful businesses are imperative for boosting employment and economic growth in the country,” she added.

The collaboration will also enable trainees to have access to Facebook’s Jobs tool to easily search for job openings. They can easily search for jobs in their Facebook app or visit www.facebook.com/jobs through their mobile phones while controlling the sharing of information with prospective employers.

“The partnership with Facebook aims to leverage the digital opportunity which can assist in creating a market place for many businesses and service offerings for candidates getting trained under our skill ecosystem and; also act as an information kiosk for knowledge sharing,” said Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

“With Facebook’s expertise and support, we are taking a step towards utilising the immense potential of digital skills for the economic betterment of the country,” he said.

Under the Skill India Mission, nearly one crore youth in the country are being annually skilled, reskilled and upskilled through various central government programmes.
