Guwahati, Jan. 8.  New Delhi - In the year-end event award ceremony to honour and felicitate people who have dedicated their time and energy for a higher and more inclusive growth for the country a Salesian organization won the award in the Non-Profit Rural Livelihood category.
The awards were given by ICICI Foundation & CNBC TV18 during their 2nd edition of the Inclusive India awards dedicated to celebrating excellence in bringing positive change to India's economic development.

The Executive Director of Delhi based Don Bosco Tech India, Fr A.M. Joseph received the award.

Fr Joseph believes, ''skill Training is the effective tool to bring the desired change in the lives of the young for growth and livelihood.''

Don Bosco Tech has set a goal of training two million youth by 2022.

To achieve this target it partners with Government, Corporates and like -minded NGOs to scale up the programme.

DB Tech, a network of Don Bosco skill training centres that attempts to bridge the widening divide between those who have access to opportunities and those who are increasingly being marginalized from the 'new economy' jobs.

The DB Tech network addresses this endemic problem with a market-based approach that is sensitive to the socio-economic needs of marginalized youth in the 18-35 years age group.

DB Tech is an example of synchronous social action of various stakeholders, aimed at mainstreaming and ensuring economic security for youth by helping them acquire the required livelihood and soft skills in an environment of learning and mentoring that is responsive to the individual's emotional and developmental needs.

Set up in 2006 with an objective to provide quality vocational training to disadvantaged youth DB Tech today is a network of 230 skill training centres, arguably the largest network after the government spread across 28 states of India.
