Skill Dvelopment Trainings

Livelihood Trainings

Economically disadvantaged women in villages and urban slums of Varanasi District lack education and employable skills; they migrate to cities in search of low-skill jobs. Bhartiya Samaj Kalyan Samiti (BSKS) has conducted a baseline survey to identify skills needed in the job market and has developed training programs for women and adolescent girls to stop them from leaving homes for bigger cities.
