The agreement was signed between VLCC & Delhi Govt. today to mark the birth anniversary of Late Prime Minister of our country, Smt. Indira Gandhi.

As per the agreement, VLCC Institutes will offer skill based beauty vocational education in select districts to encourage employability, self-reliance and entrepreneurship. A group of 40 students per batch will be trained at the VLCC Institutes on the beauty treatments. On the successful completion of the course, the students will be provided a joint certificate by VLCC in association with the Govt. of Delhi. The institutes will also assist the students in securing placements as well as guiding the students for starting their own venture.
Speaking on the occasion Mrs.Vandana Luthra, Founder & Mentor, VLCC Group said "We at VLCC feel grateful to the Government of Delhi for providing us with such a great opportunity of helping the underprivileged women and youth through vocational training which will help them secure decent livelihood. I have always tried to be a part of noble causes which aims at providing aid to the people in need. We at VLCC are equipped to train about 20,000 students per annum. This project is very close to my heart and hence I will closely monitor the progress of the same."
"It gives me immense pleasure to announce the association with the VLCC Institutes for providing vocational training to the underprivileged. A high number of women and youth living in slums and other vulnerable areas do not have access to good quality training for skills development and employment. I am sure this association will help in redefining public service by helping the underprivileged section of the society by giving them best opportunities for skill enhancement and improved income levels" said Ms. Rashmi Singh, Mission Director, Samajik Suvidha Sangam, Government of NCT of Delhi.
