Skill Development Programme for Leather Footwear at Rajabazar

A Skill Development Programme for Leather Footwear Sector has been organized by Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) from October 24, 2010 for one month in association with Government College of Engineering and Leather Technology (GCELT), supported by Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI), World Bank, Department for International Development (DFID),GIZ and KfW.

The number of participants was 26 and they were artisans trying to learn the art of manufacturing of footwear.

Initially, there was shortage of land and finance but the initiative taken by Entrepreneurship Development of India was commendable.

The training programme was known as 'open category footwear making'. The classes were held on all days of the week from Monday to Sunday on an average of 3 hours as the participants were mainly artisans already engaged in manufacturing of footwear. Trainers from various industries and institutes were teaching them skills on varied subjects.

The training programme was divided into theoretical and practical classes.

The theoretical programme consisted of:-

• Designing
• Details about Last
• Details about materials being used
• Basic idea about foot anatomy
• Size System
• Basic idea about marketing

The practical classes dealt with topics like:-

• Designing of insole
• Designing of wooden heel
• Designing of upper
• Making open category footwear of different construction

A valedictory session was conducted on the last day where future prospects were discussed with the artisans.
A plan to give them an industry exposure was discussed here. Four artisans will be taken to Agra for factory visit, where they will learn the art of chappal making. This would help them imbibe knowledge about making of 'chappals' and 'mojris'.

Further, training on cluster development will be given to them for cultivating the innate desire to get self-employed and start their own businesses. But the most important facet is that the need and desire for such advancement among the artisans is required without which any effort would be futile.
