From the very first moment when we open our eyes in this world till the time we take our last breath, we learn every day. For learning to take place, there is no need to have a defined place or institute. In fact, we can learn anywhere and anytime through different means. However, the skill and knowledge which is acquired outside the formal education and training system is not generally counted/credited. In our society, people who acquire competency through informal learning never get their skills recognized. This has created strata in society and divided us based on work/occupation.
