From Night Shelters to Certificate Trainings & Jobs: The Journey Of Delhi’s Homeless with Delhi Government
New Delhi: At an award ceremony organised by DUSIB at Dandi Park, Jamuna Bazar, Dy. CM Shri Manish Sisodia awarded certificates of completion of training, as well as a tool kit worth Rs. 1000/- to 113 homeless citizens who are living in various Night Shelters built by Delhi Govt.’s DUSIB (Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board). Many of them have also got jobs in the market by now. Apart from Chief Guest Dy CM Shri Manish Sisodia, the award ceremony was attended by MLA Ms. Alka Lamba and DUSIB CEO V. K. Jain.

Laying down the vision of Delhi Govt., the Dy. CM said “Delhi Govt’s effort is to ensure that there are no homeless people in Delhi. Every year Delhi Govt. used to get a scolding from the Hon’ble Supreme Court & High Court on the number of homeless who used to die in Delhi but in the last 2 years, CEO Mr. V.K. Jain has put up such a wonderful team in DUSIB that we can say this with confidence & pride that no one dies on Delhi roads due to winter cold. I’m happy that from giving shelters to homeless we’ve reached a stage where we are fulfilling the needs of the society by giving out trained cooks, plumbers, electricians & even massage therapists from our shelters. I congratulate all the NGOs & agencies which played the role of imparting this training. I dream that when the assistant electricians going out from here meets us years down the line, they would have provided jobs to many more electricians.”
DUSIB has been identified as the nodal agency for implementation of welfare for the homeless in Delhi. Presently DUSIB is managing more than 187-Shelters which provide food, health facilities & rehabilitation. DUSIB in association with Delhi Directorate of Training & Technical Education of Delhi Govt as well as with the selected NGOs started skill training to homeless people in 10 shelters as a pilot project, which was inaugurated by the LG and the Chief Minister. The financial support is coming from DTTE & the curriculum of these courses are also prepared by DTTE’s Industrial Training Institutes.
This is a life changing initiative for all these 113 men & women who can now hope to find better work & acceptance in the society. For the remaining of the 150 trained candidates, the exam was conducted in Aug 2017 & result is awaited.
