Creating alternative teachnical/professional opportunities for youths affected by internal conflicts.
Start: April, 2011
Area: South Bastar (Dantewada) and Sukma districts, Chhattisgarh
Number of youths reached: 197
Age of the trainees: 18 years and above
Coordinator: Md. Nayeem
Supported By: Zila Panchayat - South Bastar (Dantewada) under Integrated Development Action Plan for LWE Districts.
The project is a residential one for both illiterate and semi literate youth. In the first year 197 young adults got training and job placement from this project. The project focuses on 3 trades a) electrician, b) plumber and c) welder. After successful completion of the training the willing trainees were placed in jobs.
This was a much needed project as the majority of the inhabitants of the district, the tribal people are living in poor conditions with little or no employment opportunities. There is a lack of economic activity. On the other hand there is high demand for electrcians, plumbers and welders as lots of construction works are going on in the targeted districts.
- 297 youths have been trained till date and 80% of them are placed in jobs or helped for self-employment.
- During the training period the trainees got extensive practical exposure in live projects and learnt to work independently.
- The trainees were provided regular sports and entertainment facilities.
