Challenge

Extreme drought, mechanization and modernization of agricultural sector have thrown several thousands of people out of their jobs. The problem of unemployment and underdevelopment is widely prevalent. The rural youth especially the women and Dalits, lack professional & vocational skills. Hence they are engaged in all sorts of hazardous and menial occupations. The type of employment they get is only seasonal and temporary and fetches low wages. There is a sense of insecurity.

Solution

Outcome expected to be achieved (Impact indicators) a) Employment / self 50 women of first generation would have acquired knowledge and skill in computer application. 50 of them would have got placements. They would start earning by themselves. b) Income generation or augmentation The candidates after getting a job will earn around Rs.3000 to 5000 per month. This will help their families and enhance their standard of living. c) Women's employment

Long-Term Impact

Income generation or augmentation The candidates after getting a job will earn around Rs.3000 to 5000 per month. This will help their families and enhance their standard of living. Women's employment: As all the candidates will be only women, the employment opportunities will be more for women.
