NEW DELHI: Manipur has taken a lead in the north-east region of India to send its skilled workers as care givers to Japan for its aging population. A batch of twenty girls with a nursing background who braved the hardship of COVID-19 induced lockdown last year, took the training program at HI-NO-DE Foundation involving Japanese language and culture up-skilling, are set to leave for Japan.Many more such batches would closely follow soon.
The training was imparted to the girls under the TITP (Technical Intern Training Program) scheme of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), an offshoot of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship.
All of them attained Japanese language proficiency and qualified N4 level to become skilled care givers.
HI-NO-DE Foundation – a company involved in skill development and placement of youths of India in Japan, is empaneled as ‘Sending Organization’ by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) under the TITP Scheme. It has launched its first batch of training care givers in the middle of January, barely one a half month before the lockdown was clamped in India due to the Coronavirus outbreak in 2020. Manish Kumar, Managing Director & CEO, NSDC, said, “It is really commendable that despite COVID pandemic, due to our mutual efforts we have been able to send skilled manpower to Japan something as a mandate that was given to NSDC in Oct 2017.”
He was addressing the successful trainees during a felicitation ceremony in New Delhi recently in the presence of a score of Japanese companies. Arun K Pillai, Chief Strategy Officer, and Ms. Ritu Agarwal, Head, TITP, NSDC were also present on the occasion.
“Manipur has taken the initiative to send its people to japan and I am sure these girls would act as our ambassadors and spread the positive word about India in Japan. I know people from the North-eastern states are very hardworking and they will adjust well in Japan. I am sure Japan would be more excited to get more people from Manipur,” said Manish Kumar.
Manish Kumar also said, “We have been very careful about the quality. HI-NO-DE Foundation and others as our training partners emphasize that we want to send the best to Japan.”
