Rural young folks lend a hand at the Games Village

Over 60 rural young men from Bharatpur district in Rajasthan have joined the housekeeping services at the Commonwealth Games Village in New Delhi. The youngsters have been trained under a special employment project. Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation conducted a month-long training programme recently for the young men belonging to Below Poverty Line families under the Swarna Jayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana. They have been hired for housekeeping services during the Commonwealth Games.

Lupin Foundation's chief programme manager Murali Nair said here on Saturday that the training course was structured to meet “world-class standards” with emphasis on working knowledge of spoken and written English.

“The trainees were specially apprised of the significance of discipline and good habits crucial for their behaviour during the services for Commonwealth Games,” said Mr. Nair.
