India has a large number of illiterates, school dropouts and unemployed rural youths. It also has one of the highest numbers of unskilled or inappropriately skilled manpower idling for want of opportunities. There has been proliferation of private and government run technical institutions which are specialized in vocational training. However, in spite of these efforts the number of unemployed youths is constantly increasing. The project is an initiative of the Swarna Jayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojna (SGSY) of the Government of India, Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD). It aims to uplift families on the Below Poverty Line (BPL) through various income generation initiatives. The project was aimed at providing skill based training to the youths belonging to BPL families and to provide them employment opportunities for sustainability and better quality of life.
