  •            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
