The temporary migration of heads of families to nearby towns (Erode, Salem, Namakkal) in search of a decent livelihood due to unreliable monsoons (average rainfall between 350-500mm) and the influence of drinking problems have forced women to take up the entire responsibility. Continuing with the education is a big challenge for children from these poor families.Many youth fall under the unorganized sector, embedded with drawbacks like no social security, bonded labour, sexual harassment, etc.
To procure a successful career, youth need support both personally and financially. The only option that is available is the vocational skills training. Vocational training allows students to gain practical work skills within a short span of time without having to pay huge tuition fees as well as enhances their employability. The student's course fee, uniform, text & note books, stationery, lunch and travelling allowance will be taken care off in the project.
Since vocational training begins in high school, students can graduate and prepare to take a high-paying, skilled job immediately. They carry the credential 'skilled trainees' which ensures them 100% employment, improve their livelihood opportunities, reduce poverty, enhance productivity and become more supplementary to the family's financial outline. The standard of living of skilled youth will stand as a witness for the success of skill programmes amongst the inhabitants in their locality.
