Empowering Youths through Skill Development Training
Disadvantage youths including female , with focus on dalit, and ultra poor household are the project target group. Concentration has been made on disadvantage youths belonging to dalit, and poor families, as they have very less land holding. Education of the target group is minimum 10th class, lacking technical expertise and hence they are unable to get even clerical jobs. Induction of more sophisticated and modern technology has bounded the recruitment of manpower. It compels youth to engage themselves in labor work (i.e. in agriculture, brick factory, house construction etc.) but it doesn't give them long time employment and are also exploited by landlord. Youth with 10th and 12th class pass are illiterate to computer education, where there is great opportunity of employment at anywhere.
Unemployment causes acute frustration among youth. Unemployment is a major human problem of the area as the employment is the only solution of the poverty. It affects schedule caste/dalit, backward caste and poor family. In this line when we consider unemployment of youth it is heartbreaking. No of unemployed youth especially in deprived family is gradually increasing.
Community will identify the disadvantage youth by participatory approach & organisation survey .
