After this training of Beauty Services and tailoring Vatsalya has also reached to the level of Mobile repairing Service Centre, Computer Training Centre, RC and so on. 

An aim is to get good jobs we took initiative to introduce these courses under their aegis. 

One more notable feature, of the course is that in each batch we take about 250 girls from Kurla suburban areas of Mumbai. These areas are not easily accessible and they are starved of basic facilities.
