The Manipur Society for Skill Development, Government of Manipur in collaboration with the District Administration, Ukhrul organised a one-day District Skill cum Employment Mela at the Townhall in Ukhrul on Friday.
This program was organised with the intention to generate awareness about various central and state government skill development schemes and also connect the youths with various training providers and major employers of the state so as to bridge the gap of demand and supply in the job market.
The function was graced by Luckyson N Kashung, IAS, Mission Director, Manipur Society for Skill Development as the chief guest in the presence of Ukhrul DC Kengoo Zuringla.
Speaking at the event, Kashung lamented that if “our” society is resistant to changes, we will be left behind in this cut-throat competitive world.
“We should also prepare to fit in for the job that does not exist today but would be there after ten years down the line,” said Kashung.
He further mentioned that education in skill development was very important.
He said, it is just putting our knowledge into practice by undergoing some vocational training which further will help in unemployment in the society.
