The project focus group are dalit, and ultra poor household with special emphasis and focus on female. The project has made special focus on disadvantage youths belonging to dalit, and poor families, as they have very less land holding. The minimum qualification of target group is minimum 10th class, absence of technical expertise and it has compelled them to engage in labour work and are not able to qualify for even clerical jobs. Induction of more sophisticated and modern technology has bounded the recruitment of manpower. It compels youth to engage themselves in labour work (i.e. in agriculture, brick factory, house construction etc.) but it is not the solution of unemployment as it is very short term employment , which doesn’t bring any positive change on their life and they become a doll before landlord and fase serious of exploitation .
