M G C T encourages unemployed youth to get technical training in the following technical trades:

Women empowerment through Tailoring centers:
Women have always been marginalized and downgraded to the status of subjugated class in the Indian society. Due to lack of specific implementation of plans, local communities especially women have remained outside the scope and benefits of government schemes and programs. Women have not actively participated in their emancipation due to their lack of economic independence and illiteracy. There is a need to address the issue by raising the status of women. Keeping this issue in mind M G C T started running training programs for the empowerment of women.
The main objective of this tailoring training program is to enhance the quality of life of women and teenage girls through enhancement of their skills and knowledge. Due to poverty, these teenage girls drop out of high school to get married and work as temporary agriculture- workers, sweepers and manual daily labor.. They needed to learn newer vocational skills such as tailoring (sewing) which can help them earn more income and become economically self-sufficient and independent. This will alleviate poverty, help them support their family needs without being dependent of husband and parents. In order to help them, M G C T started free tailoring (sewing) training centers in various locations.
In these training canters, tailoring skills are imparted free of cost. Students are trained by a qualified professional tailoring teacher. Certificates are given to those who successfully complete the course. These tailoring classes enable women/Girls in rural and sub-urban areas to earn on their own, making them self-confident and self-dependent. After completing of 6 months training, some women/Girls can start their own tailoring shops, while many can secure well-paying jobs in the export garment factories in the nearby areas, or sub-contract work from large tailoring shops.
