Education & Livelihood

The Education & Livelihood Programme takes into account the harsh realities prevalent in the area, including meagre employment opportunities, low skill sets and poor aspiration among people. With low levels of literacy and higher dependence on informal means of livelihood, achieving gainful employment and sustainable livelihoods is a monumental task. In a bid to break the persisting cycle of inter-generational poverty, the Programme focuses on the wholesome development of an individual, particularly adolescents, youth and women. It supports them to continue their formal education, encourages them to aspire and facilitates employability, life skills and vocational training.
