Training village youth with new skill sets

Ajay Kumar and Deepika Sharma

Teach for Green is a social enterprise that has positioned itself as a rural green incubator. It is conducting several training programs with the rural youth, teaching them the skills of manufacturing green products like solar lamps.

After training, the enterprise is linking the youth to financial institutions and helping them set up microenterprises. This is the way it is creating alternative livelihood options in rural areas.

According to Ajay, “Teach for Green is planning to set up 50 such rural micro-enterprises in the next one year.”
