Skill Development

Enabling employment opportunities and building confidence among youth and women for better livelihood options.

Building a bright future
for the youth and women

The economy in Yadgir is predominantly dependent on agriculture. The district witnesses a high incidence of seasonal unemployment and migration. Approximately 60% of the population migrate seasonally to nearby cities in search of small-time jobs. Lack of skills, absence of knowledge about jobs and lack of industrialisation compounds the problem of unemployment and is responsible for this migration.

Our approach builds on both farm and non-farm based interventions. The goal is to not only benefit the individual through upskill and relevant livelihood opportunities, but also grow the economy in and around Yadgir to reduce the incidence of migration.

We have identified three core areas of skill development — Micro-enterprises and Entrepreneurship, Vocational Training and Finishing Schools.

Creating a sustainable ecosystem plays a critical role in skill development; it will ensure collectively raising incomes of households. Through these skill development interventions, community institutions would be strengthened and ultimately become independent and sustainable in nature.
