Awinash Kulkarni a B.E. Electronics Engineer is Supervisor at VTC

We have leased one building from Kolhapur Municipal Corporation. This served as our first Hostel. After construction of Gharonda, we converted this unit into a full fledged workshop. Since everyone is not academically inclined, school drop-outs are given vocational training by which they can earn their bread and live with dignity.

At present (10) physically challenged staff and vocational trainees make calipers, tricycles, commodes as well as office and school furniture. The unit is supervised by a wheel chair bound paraplegic engineer.

Government of Maharashtra has recognized our Vocational Training Center as one of the three suppliers of aids and appliances to physically challenged state government employees. This recognition would enhance the revenue generation capability of the center which was hitherto run only to provide a valuable service of supply and repair of appliances.
