EMPLOYABILITY SKILL TRAINING - PRACTICAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENTPoor people have potentials to learn but they seldom have affordability and accessibility to get training or skill acquiring possibilities. They are mostly agriculture labourers and underemployed idling their time during agriculture off season.
