Equity Investment Will Create New Corporate, Domestic Employment Opportunities For Those Living At The Base Of The Pyramid
NEW DELHI, 20 NOVEMBER 2012 – Committed to skilling and securing employment for the millions of potential service industry workers currently living in ultra poverty, Delhi-based Justrojgar is proud to announce that it has secured an initial equity investment from Upaya Social Ventures. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“This strategic partnership will afford Justrojgar the resources and expertise needed to connect those living in extreme poverty with an ever-expanding array of opportunities in the service sector,” said Ajaya Mohapatra, Managing Director of Techpeople, the parent company of Justrojgar. “Together we are working to ensure rojgar (jobs) for the poor in a way that is just and equitable for all,” said Mohapatra.
Justrojgar was designed as a social venture to bridge the demand-supply gap in the service industry by creating a comprehensive ecosystem to train job seekers and link them with potential employers. For corporate clients, service employees can fill roles such as janitors, security guards, and porters, while in a domestic setting these positions can include full- and part-time housekeepers, cooks, doormen, and caretakers. Through its partnership with Upaya, Justrojgar will build on its pilot National Capital Region operations to establish a national footprint for skilling and placing the manpower needed to fill the massive national labor market shortage for formalized service work.
“By allowing a variety of corporate and domestic employers to confidently source capable and reliable employees, Justrojgar is making it possible for those living in the furthest depths of poverty to directly benefit from the country’s economic growth,” said Sachi Shenoy, Upaya’s Executive Director. “Upaya has been impressed by what the Justrojgar team has accomplished so far and sees great potential in this model,” she said.
The partnership coincides with the launch of www.justrojgar.com, India’s first-ever integrated online employment exchange for the service sector. The company envisions the website as a complement to its other efforts to recruit, train, place, and support service sector employees. Justrojgar is also fostering on-the-ground partnerships with the government, NGOs, corporates, industries, microfinance institutions and microfinance associations to fully realize the potential of its platform.
justrojgar.com started YUVA-Market Aligned Skill Training (MAST) for the under-educated and under-skilled youth of Delhi slums in partnerships with Delhi Police & American India Foundation (AIF) at the Vasant Vihar Police Station, New Delhi on November 5, 2012. The skill courses include IT & ITeS Services, Housekeeping and Facility Management Services, Basic English and Work Prepardness Skills.
The programme was inaugurated by Ms. Chaya Sharma, DCP (South) along with Mr. Anil Sharma, SHO (Police Station, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi). While inaugurating the programme Ms. Sharma said that it is a great opportunity for the youth to acquire skills through YUVA-MAST programme to become employable.
On this occasion, senior officials of Delhi police; Mr. Hanumant Rawat, Director (Livelihoods), Mr. Prabhakar, Ms. Aparna and Ms. Nikita from AIF; representatives of We The People; 40 boys and girls from South Delhi slums enrolled for IT & ITeS skill training attended the event.
