Reach to the rural youth and motivate them to the maximum extent possibleRural youth is the big answer to many of our big problems. In States with rapidly declining birth rates, like Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the rural youth need to be guided properly. For example, within a radius of around 80 kilometers from the two industrial hubs of Oragadam and Sriperambadur, near Chennai, thousands of rural youth are gainfully employed in the assembly units and most of them are girls who had studied upto just the plus two level.
However, there is no full stop here. After earning a bit, they opt to enrol themselves in the distance education program of any State University and become graduates and also acquire new skill sets in IT, or bakery or SAP and so on and jump jobs to far better careers. The rural youth need to be properly guided on all possible technical courses so that they will learn something and also earn something in their lives.
