Significant learning till date:

This project has conceived agro related vocational training courses on one hand to ensure and enhance rural inclusion and on other hand to start ecologically sustainable entrepreneurial activity in rural areas to address the issues like migration, hunger, joblessness etc.

Locally feasible and culturally adaptable rural income generation activities have sufficient possibility to engage rural youth by providing them remunerative options to earn, grow and excel.

It is inevitably necessary to identify ‘the market’ and establish direct linkage between producer/service provider at the village level and ‘the market’, or at least minimizing the intermediary existing in the value chain to the possible extent to ensure maximum possible return to the rural producer
