Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC), India’s largest quality vocational training provider for the apparel industry, has signed an agreement with Groz Beckert Asia to launch the CSR initiative for vocational training at ATDC Chandigarh. Groz Beckert is world’s leading provider of industrial needles, precision components for the production of textiles.

Under this CSR initiative, Groz Beckert Asia  will sponsor the training of five students under B.Voc degree course to be conducted at ATDC Chandigarh and ten students under ATDC vocational institute's one year diploma course to be conducted at ATDC Ludhiana. 

"It is to be noted that more than 85 per cent of our students are girls / women and they require all the support to come to the forefront of the society.  The more our girls / women get empowered through wage & self-employment, the families will benefit and in turn the country will progress rapidly. Therefore, the support which Groz Beckert Asia is extending to the students will greatly help and motivate more and more students to join our vocational programmes which focus on employability.  Groz Beckert Asia known for technology leadership has set a laudable example and we appreciate this gracious gesture which needs to be emulated by more companies in this sector so that new opportunities for career advancement and personality development of students  can be enabled," Dr  Darlie Koshy, DG & CEO, ATDC, said.

"ATDC's focus on CSR has been on designing and deploying sustainable programmes, where the community takes ownership of the programmes in the true spirit of participatory development," said Roopali Shukla, advisor, ATDC ToT Academies and Sr regional manager Chandigarh & Punjab. 

There is a sharper emphasis on capacity building of the community, which has led to better impact of programmes on skill development for both men and women, Shukla added.

ATDC has emerged as India’s largest vocational training network for the apparel sector and will further develop and upgrade its policies, systems and procedures. (RR)
