HELP stands for our Humanitarian-aid for Employment & Livelihood Project. Unemployment is an increasing problem in India. The society conducts surveys to recognize industries that have a demand for manpower. It then facilitates training programs to upskill the unemployed population and provide them with jobs.
The Society is helping unemployed youth with the following jobs –
- Jute/cloth bags manufacturing
- Security Guards
- Nursery Maintenance
- Waste Management
These jobs provide a stepping stone for the unemployed youth to start or restart their careers. With a stable income, these excluded members of society find some semblance of a normal life and can therefore develop their skills to be able to practice upward social mobility.
