Summary

The need, therefore, is to create increasing opportunities for adolescents to develop their personality and their functional capability, thus making them economically productive and socially useful. Such opportunities have to be created on a large scale, to cover a wide spectrum of areas of human endeavour, and they have to be made available to youth of all the strata of society, particularly the disadvantaged. Accordingly, the project intends to impart vocational training to 200 adolescents.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The adolescents are either drop-out children from the primary schools or children who have not gone through proper primary education. These adolescents are working as labour force either in agricultural fields or in hazardous industries without proper remuneration and safety measures. Due to unemployment problem, the youth are forced to go on migration in search of livelihood or becoming as anti-social elements in the society.

How will this project solve this problem?

In the age group of 14-18, who have dropped out from the studies, are identified and promoted for this vocational training. Tthe project intends to provide 6 months intensive residential or non-residential training to adolescents to teach sufficient skill in selected trade as per their interest and choice. The trades and candidates to be trained in that particular trade are finalized as per the needs and demand of each area specific to the probable employment opportunities available locally.

Potential Long Term Impact

200 adolescents belonging to the poor families in Prakasam and Guntur Districts are trained in selected trades over a project period of one year. 75% of the trained candidates are settled in their professions either by establishing their own work units or service centres or obtained jobs and live with pride and dignity in the society.
