Unemployment, climate change, low income for family-run farms, rural to urban migration. There are plenty of challenges for those growing up in the Nainital district in the state of Uttarakhand in North India.
To help reverse this decline, we are investing in practical training that will increase the skills and entrepreneurship of local young people from farming families. In the short term, these training courses will lead to better paid jobs and a better understanding of the production chain. In the long term, we hope that by developing their leadership and entrepreneurial skills, these young people will become driving forces within their local community.
