Centre For Executive Development & Training (CEDAT)

We started CEDAT program in 2007, in association with NASSCOM Foundation.

The main objective was to encourage and empower educated people with special needs, to reach their full potential and join the mainstream employment; thus, they no longer need to depend on others economically. Nearly 85 people were placed in jobs after completing the basic course of Computer Operations, English communication and Personality Development.

In June 2017 the same training module was replicated after shifting to GODS Abode at Airoli, with the able support of the Rotary Club of Bombay Pier. But in Airoli, we found there were not many people with disabilities to take up this course.. Hence this course has been conducted for under privileged students of local Municipal schools along with our own day care and life care students. This course helps these students immensely as they don’t get English coaching or computer time in their schools. They can use this knowledge in their future education or jobs.

Topics covered in Computer Training

  • Introduction to Computer
    hardware & software
  • MS Office
    (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • Introduction to Internet and its application
  • Project / Exams

Topics Covered in English language

  • Spoken & Written English
  • Basic grammar along with sentence making, story writing, etc.
  • Back Office activities
    Telephone Operating, Xeroxing, Filing, etc. & in the process, learning office etiquettes, discipline, team work as part of the training.
  • Assignments for group discussion to improve on communication skills and public speaking.

The above courses helped all of them in getting good exposure to English language, as most of them were from the vernacular language background. And this exposure helped them to learn computer operations in English.

Online Training

Due to Pandemic, when the live classes had to be stopped, we explored how else we could reach out to people.

Finding a group of students with speech & hearing impairment in Palghar, through Able to Ability initiative of District 3141 of the Rotary clubs and the Rotary club of Palghar, online training sessions for Palghar students started on 14th October, 2020. The sessions are taken thrice a week, with a trainer and a speech therapist for interpretation. Sonopant Dandekar college, Palghar graciously agreed to help these students with their computer lab for the training period.

We have completed 5 batches students of NMMC school, Navi Mumbai and 2 batches of Speech and Hearing students from Palghar, Online.

AMBA Foundation

AMBA foundation is an Institution that imparts residential training to various NGOs all over India, free of cost. This is an alternate education for adults with moderate to severe intellectual disability. AMBA vision is to change the mind set about our adults while discovering infinite possibilities for a life of dignity for them through economic empowerment.

AMBA focus is upbringing sustainable livelihood to adults with very low IQ below 65% and having no capacity to do formal education, by using information technology. Our Team of 3 (one Special Educator & 2 Beneficaries) attended a weekly residential Training Programme at Bangalore in July 2017. The Training was very well organised. Our Team enjoyed the Training and learnt in detail about the courses.
There was NCA (non-computer activity) training and training on computer.

After this Training, we at MBA Foundation have started AMBA program from August 2017.

There are 20 trainees; 2 peer trainers, 1 assistant teacher and chief trainer. Regular monthly reports are also being sent to AMBA H.O. at Bangalore.

The aim of the AMBA Foundation is to ensure that after completion of training, our Trainees are well equipped to undertake assignments pertaining to Visual and Functional data entry for companies.

AMBA Foundation will help us in getting job works for them. This hand holding will instil confidence in our Team and bring out a positive outlook in obtaining repeated future orders.

But due to the pandemic, the progress has been stalled a little; we await normalcy to return soon, so that our trainees can start getting job works.
