Developing internal resource persons and trainers in candle making
A candle making workshop by artist Mr Mahendra Matele was organised for our project staff – Kalidas Rote and Supriya Yadav to train them in candle making skills
Like every organization, Mumbai Smiles Foundation also invests its time and resources towards training and building skills of employees. As employees are the core pillars supporting every project’s achievements, our training programs are focused on ensuring every project member is equipped with necessary tools to deliver project outcomes. Beyond technical skills, our aim is to also train our staff as resource persons with capabilities to train beneficiaries in candle making and other vocational skills.
Towards this end, a candle making workshop by artist Mr Mahendra Matele was organised for our project staff – Kalidas Rote and Supriya Yadav. The 3 hours hands on workshop included an introductory class on the art and craft of candle making, a detailed demonstration, and a do it yourself session where our staff designed beautiful colourful candles. Our staff was taken through each process step by step, and materials and tools required to make candles were explained.
The staff members were happy to participate in the workshop, and are eager to become candle making trainers in future for beneficiaries!
