Message of Founder Director
The Basic idea of VERVE was born when I found that most of the females in the house decorate their houses almost every day, without being paid & the getting any credits or appreciations. They have an inner capability to keep the house clean, organized, well maintained & decorated on regular basis & also on special occasions & festivals. Also, as these days, spaces are getting so very expensive, space planning has become very important for everyone. So in order cater the need of space management & proper planning, everyone’s urge for having beautiful homes & workplaces, we have developed this course, where not only females but also males, who are interested in art, design, creativity, construction, architecture etc can do this course along with their regular studies & can make themselves as a skilled designers in the field of Interiors & Furniture Design.
In India, about 65-70% women who take a career break fail to return to work, and a large number of women who are well educated & have potential to become a valuable part of the workforce do not even get a chance to begin their career. VERVE brings amazing women employment opportunities, in the form of internship jobs for women, to help them restart their career. With flexible working options like work from home options & part-time options, women can now manage both – their career and household responsibilities. Further, if women want to go back to the workplace, they can opt for office-based internships and make a gradual switch to professional life.
