Objective of the Project: Under the Project/Scheme Youth of Meghalaya, specially the Youth of the North Garo Hills district will be mobilized to undertake various Skill Development Training in Agricultural Sector Job Roles viz. Organic Farmer, Mushroom Grower and Piggery Farmer.
The programme would also help in further prospering the native and Agriculture and Allied Activities in the area. The programme would also help Youth to take up Entrepreneurial Opportunity without requiring going outside the state in search of jobs.
Duration of the trainings is likely to be shorter than ordinary trainings, as the programme is designed to meet the local demands. Standardized courses would attract the youth and better participation.
