Workshop for the Rehabilitation and Training of the Handicapped (WORTH Trust) has as its mission the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities through systematic vocational training and employs these persons to turn out quality industrial components.
WORTH Trust runs three Technical Training Centers (TTC) – in Katpadi, Trichy and Pondicherry. The TTCs provide training to the differently abled students (speech & hearing impaired and physically challenged) in Turner, Machinist, Electronic Mechanic and Welder trades and prepares them for the National Council for Vocational Trades (NCVT), Government of India examination. It is a formal two year residential programme. Upon completion of the course the students are placed either in the various units of WORTH Trust or in other reputed industries.
Cognizant Foundation has supported WORTH Trust for the purchase of a Computerized Numeric Control (CNC) Tutor machine, to provide training in CNC technology to differently abled students in Turner and Machinist trades in all their three Technical Training Centers. Knowledge of CNC machine operation is imperative for students to get competitive jobs as most companies have moved on from conventional machines to modern CNC machines. Every year 100 differently abled youth will be provided with CNC machine training through the Tutor machine.
