Industrial Training and Job Training Institutions in rural India have the vital stake in the development of their communities. Good rural development supportive programs empower these communities by engaging members of these village level institutions to actively participate in their own development.
Punarvasu’s Rural Educational Institutions Establishment provides leadership skills, training and interventions to enhance the responsiveness, accountability and transparency of village groups and committees. Skills are developed as community leaders share knowledge and learn by doing. Collective action inspires confidence, self-worth and self-reliance. Institutions gain strength by identifying and addressing problems collectively. They use their newfound strength to develop village plans, access funds from the government and implement the plans in a transparent manner. However, Village institutions are very crucial for ensuring the sustainability of the development and decentralized decision making in project planning, implementation and management.
