The National Skill Development Corporation, in partnership with Seva Bharti and Yuva Vikas Society, launched the second phase of Grameen Udyami project on August 20. The aim of the project is to further improve the skill training in tribal communities for their inclusive and sustainable growth.
Under the initiative, the endeavour is to multiskill India’s youth and impart functional skills to them for enabling livelihoods. Union Minister of Tribal affairs Arjun Munda inaugurated the programme and spoke about the Central Government’s commitment to work for uplifting of the tribal communities in the country.
Grameen Udyami is a unique multiskilling project funded by the NSDC that aims to train 450 tribal students in Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand. In the first phase of training, candidates were mobilised from rural and tribal areas of Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.
