Empowering Girls through Skill Development Training
The focus project beneficiaries are youths including female with focus on dalit, and ultra poor. Dalit and poor have very less or minimal land holding , in this line project made major emphasis on youth belonging to this group . The target beneficiaries lacking technical know how as they are literate maximum upto 10th class , it resist them to get employment at minimum level. Induction of more sophisticated and modern technology has bounded the recruitment of manpower. Hence the target youth have no option for employment and hence involved in labour work (i.e. in agriculture, brick factory, house construction etc.) . But it is very short term engagement and they don’t get legal remuneration Youth even with 10th and 12th class pass are illiterate to computer education, where there is great opportunity of employment at anywhere.
It hampers the confidence of youth and create frustration among youth. Unemployment is the major concern for the unemployed youth as without employment they are unable to think of own growth and support to families. It affects schedule caste/dalit, backward caste and poor family. We are working in this area for a long time and experienced unemployment is a major challenged for youth and it is heart-breaking.
