National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM) Scheme has been formulated to
impart IT training to 6 crore people, including Anganwadi and ASHA workers
and authorized ration dealers in all the States/UTs across the country so that
the non-digitally literate citizens are trained to become digitally literate so
as to enable them to actively and effectively participate in the democratic and
developmental process and also enhance their livelihood.
Sustainable Livelihoods to Farmers
The tribals of Dantewada are dependent on forest
and agriculture for their livelihood. The forest provides them with wild food,
medicines, fire-wood, fodder and minor forest produce. Agriculture, on the other
hand, is mainly practiced as a means of subsistence.
Threads of Hope
As part of our mission, we place high importance on women
empowerment and have taken the route of social empowerment of women
through economic independence for our programs. Our Women Skill development
centers provide necessary training in various market required skills along
with livelihoods support for getting placed in jobs or setting up their businesses.
