Don Bosco Tech is the network of 306+ Don Bosco skill training centres which provides employment-linked and market-driven short duration vocational courses to the economically and socially marginalized youth. Set up in 2008 by the Salesians of Don Bosco, DB Tech addresses the issues of unemployment, un-employability and lack of skilled manpower with a market-based approach that is sensitive to the socio-economic needs of marginalized youth in the age group 18-35 years. With funding from the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, under the Swarnajayanthi Gram SwarozgarYojana (SGSY), DB Tech aims at empowering youth from below poverty line through the Bosco Academy for Skills and Employment (BASE) project. Under this project, around 2,35,437 underprivileged youth from 29 states have been trained in market-driven course and placed in entry level opportunities in various sectors.

The DB Tech program was launched in Manikandam in the year 2013 with a view of educating and providing employment to the local youth. 3rd of October 2015 was undeniably a unique day for the DB Tech Manikandam Centre. It was on that phenomenal day that the BASE Program was launched at Manikandam, Trichy, with a scope of providing technical skills and job opportunity for the poor and marginalized youngsters of Trichy region.

It was launched with full delight by accommodating 42 students, who were the authentic tools in stretching out the Mission and Vision of DB TECH Skilling India in and around Manikandam Union. It has gone through a remarkable growth for the past two years. Many, including our Centre Head and the State Team, have appreciated the Centre Team for the successful running of the Course. At present, it is running under two projects such as Quest Alliance for Retail Management and Accenture for Business Process Outsourcing, for three months each. Totally 526 trainees have undergone the training program and above 80% of the trainees are placed in various companies. As we look back to the past years, we feel happy about our performance. This has enriched us to do a better mission in the days to come.
