The project is capacitating youths from poor and marginalized sections with special focus on Girls/women, PWDs, and thereby enable them to reach out to better livelihood opportunities and thereby lead a dignified life.


To provide meaningful opportunities to youth the project is

  •             Creating entry level employment opportunities for marginalised youth
  •            Bringing about a reduction in the number of people living below the poverty line in the intervention area
  •            Enhancing and providing necessary inputs for personality development, life skills and forward and backward linkages for the trained youth for sustainability of the efforts and better quality of life
  •            Helping trained youth having exceptional aptitude and interest to emerge as successful entrepreneurs and catalysts for generating more employment opportunities
  •            Advocating for adoption of similar approaches in private and state run training programmes focusing on employability and entrepreneurship opportunities
