Our organization has been educating and motivating the people of the villages to select other options apart from farming. Livelihood promotion is one of the biggest work of our organization in the rural areas. People here have limited sources of income for their livelihood as the are mainly dependent on agriculture; that’s why they can’t fulfill their needs. We try to educate and motivate them to choose different options apart from agriculture. In the year of 2017-2018, we have given several trainings and workshops to local people about different Government schemes which are related to their livelihood.

We distributed emergency kits like Life jacket, rescue kits, shelter and food to the people of nearby areas.
