ETHASHA runs a training program titled 'Confidence in Accounts, Taxation and Tally.' The objective of the program is to prepare youth for a career in Accounts in the context of computerized accounting systems in Small and Medium Enterprises and to assist with placement in reputed organizations. One unit of donation to the program will cover the cost of training, training supplies, trainer salary and operating expenses of the center for one student for a month.

The program covers latest Tally accounting packages, basic accounting principles and practices, basics of taxation, usage of computer and internet, spoken English, interpersonal and social confidence and behavioral skills. For admission in the CATT program, students should have passed their Grade XII, be 18 years of age and have an interest and aptitude for working with numbers. Potential trainees who are keen to start working and meet the necessary criteria for our programs are identified from the community. A simple English comprehension test is conducted to assess trainees' level of comprehension of the language and their ability to keep up with the course inputs. The Community Mobilisation team conducts a home visit with the applicant's family to assess their economic circumstances, support for their child's participation in the program, support for their child taking up work upon completion of the program and to address any concerns they may have. Dialogue with the families of participants is kept up through home visits as well as parents' meetings in the centers. The training is conducted for batches of 18 to 22 trainees. Training starts with building the foundations in basic accounting concepts, keyboard skills as well as computer and internet usage skills. Extensive practice of accounting with examples as well as on the latest version of Tally is a significant part of the program. Basic concepts of taxation and issues related to the filing of taxes are also covered.
