CRP Madhab Memorial Vocational Training Institute (VTI)

CRP’s Madhab Memorial Vocational Training Institute (VTI) was established in 1999 and affiliated in 2003 to the “Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB)”. The target trainees are suffering from spinal cord injuries and other physical difficulties such as Polio, amputees, one-eyed, deaf & dumb, etc.

CRP’s Madhab Memorial Vocational Training Institute (VTI) offers courses at three CRP centres in Manikganj, Ganakbariand Barisal. VTI works comprehensively in assessing the needs of a potential trainee, securing a place in an appropriate course, and assisting with job placements on completion of the course.

Here training is free of cost including food, accommodation and training materials, and also supports the trainees with medical and assistive devices and equipment for self-employment. The trainees also get opportunities to take part in the National & International competitions. The main objective of VTI is to develop skill training among people with disabilities and ensure employment opportunities in different areas.

VTI received some donations from several high profile organizations. The donation was used to cover the training costs. The notable donation comes from Marks & Spencer, BSRM, ILO, and TESCO.

Marks & Spencer is a buyer of the UK and their Bangladeshi suppliers support the disabled people’s training costs at CRP and ensure their job after completing the training. More than 1918 people are now working at 72 different garment factories all over Bangladesh. Mark & Spencer is looking forward to employing more highly skilled people, who were trained at CRP, in this challenging job in the future.

Post-training follow-up is an important part of assessing the impact and continuous development of the programme. This is done through home visits and by sending questionnaires.
