IMPART VOCATIONAL TRAINING TO 200 ADOLESCENTS
by ASSIST
 
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. project reportread updates from the field
ENSURING ALL THE CHILDREN GO FOR SCHOOLING
by ASSIST
 
It is still a fact that the vulnerable children in remote areas of Andhra Pradesh do not go for schooling either due to economic disparity or ignorance of the parents or lack of facilities or many other factors. Girl children are more deprived of the education as they are treated differently than of male children with the strong premise that they go out one day or other after the marriage. Hence, the girl children are considered more as burden. project reportread updates from the field
