North East Vocational & Skill Academy Pvt. Ltd. was incorporated on the Twenty Fifth day of May Two Thousand Sixteen. With the registered office at M-73, Zakamlova Building, Armed Veng, Aizawl, Mizoram.
The main objective of the Academy is to promote and provide world class skilling and training amongst the unskilled sector of Mizoram and other North Eastern youths.
The first phase of the project is to start a small scale operation at Armed Veng, with a major expansion plan for 2nd phase at Lengte. The land at Lengte is owned by one of the Director.
Our main / parent business viz, Zakamlova Hardware Store has been in existence for more than 30 years and has witnessed success in Mizoram. Through these years, we have been working closely with carpenters, plumbers, masons, etc. We have seen their ups and downs, and have felt their needs and we have continuously tried our very best to upgrade them in terms of skill, tools and safety.
We have always been a trendsetter. We were the first to introduce - Melamine wood finishes, Corian Solid surface, Karam safety products, Olive Glass railings etc.
Currently the business is managed both by 1st Generation business veterans and 2ndGeneration business professionals. Our core management team comprises of senior veterans who have more than 30 years of business experience, management graduates from IIM’s and educationists. Some of our ex-employees have even started their own businesses and they were actually very thankful for the training and experience they had with us.
We have felt and seen the need for skill training since most of the skill forces in the market are mostly self-taught. There are also many unemployed youth in North East who tend to fall to drug addictions, underground militancy and other social ills. It has been our long term wish to bring social and financial upliftment for the society. We hope to train at least 23,540 youths by the end of the 7th year of our operation.
Accordingly, we have started this new company specifically for this purpose. We have selected the courses based on our core competency and where we felt there are skill gaps.
We are pleased to announce that several companies have agreed to become our technical partners. With God’s blessing and the support and parenting of NSDC and other corporate partners, we are confident that we will bring world class training for the youths in North East.
