Livelihood Skill Training

Livelihood Skill Training

 

Creating more livelihood opportunities through skill development is both a challenge and an opportunity. We continue to equip people from our program area either by providing them new set of skills or by upgrading their skills, both aiming at enhancement of their income. We do cover both the farm and non-farm sectors.

It is a natural phenomenon for a community to expect direct employment in any industry that is set-up in their neighbourhood. It is also true that some of the locally existing employment patterns are also disturbed because of industrialization. But what also is true is the fact that the number of people who could be directly employed by industry is limited. To ensure that the operations of the Company continue uninterrupted, we have to ensure that the community also grows along with the company. There is, thus, a need to help people acquire skills for their livelihood. Considering this, we sense that skilling people for livelihood is our social responsibility and hence we have this as a major focus of our CSR.
