  1. Providing technical skills to rural youth especially to those falling below the poverty line and who find it really hard to find a decent job to pay off their debts and elevate their social and financial conditions
  2. Enabling rural youth to take up self-employment as an opportunity and exploring the larger fields of agriculture and other allied activities.
