Attractive Training model

By offering a full day program the training period is reduced to six months. During the internship period a minimum of Rs 6,000 is earned as a stipend, and as such the total fees of Rs 12,000 is effectively reduced to Rs 6,000 or less. This cost over 6 months is usually recovered in the first month of employment. Also, the majority of trainees are benefitting from various scholarship schemes that are offered by the institute, funded by individual and institutional donors.

Post Training Employment

On completion of the internship period, 20-25 % of qualified trainees are offered jobs by the respective organizations. For others, Karigar arranges job interviews with potential employers and also offers interest free loans for those who wish to start their own businesses. Starting salaries for most trainees range between Rs. 8,000-15,000. After a couple of years they usually earn Rs 15,000 – Rs 25,000 per month. Karigar contributes to career development of its alumni by arranging regular counseling sessions and provides job placement services to previously qualified trainees, who may be unemployed
