Whole world is talking about India and that is because our talented citizens are settled worldwide. Our doctors, scientists, architects, designers, etc. are leaving great impressions of their work throughout the world. Hence, everyone has very high expectations from Indians. But still most of our rural areas have low education level. This demands prime need for Promoting Education in India much more than ever.
South India is home to many rural communities and villages with cultural variation distinguishing them, but poverty amassing many together. The lack of funds and technical backwardness highlights the poor plight of the village systems – where the population is too unaware to even know what amenities they are lacking. One of the primary ways to ensure a path towards a growing lifestyle is to ensure good health since all other developmental efforts bank on it. However, there exists a massive disparity in the availability of this service within urban and rural areas, where the latter doesn’t even get access to basic sanitation, let alone proper medical services.
Our Roots are our villages and we still depend on these villages for some of our prime needs. One of those prime needs is food and this is majorly done in villages by our hard working farmers. They work die-hard all year long to feed entire nation, but are they getting in return what they are worth for and what they deserve!

India is a country that is characterized by its diversity in demographic, resources, culture, religion, language and all other spheres of society. Where on the one hand this diversity gives the nation its unique identity, on the other hand, it is also the root cause of a vast variety of social issues. It is a country that is developing but with massively underutilized potential and a considerable population that is difficult to provide for. What it needs is a reformation of mindset, a betterment of skills and considerable investment on socio-economic upliftment.
The latest Indian census indicates a 490,000+ community of transgender people in India. They are recognized legally as the “Other”, and treated exactly like their legal namesake – the transgender, Hijra community of India is till date sidelined, stereotyped and stigmatized. They seem to every “normal” person as someone who is different and unnatural. It is this lack of acceptance and discrimination that is the primary cause of their terrible conditions of lifestyle and why there seems to be no escaping this plight.
For increasing economic potential of India it is necessary to increase potential of our Youth as well. Seed CSR has implemented a number of Skill Development Programs in collaboration with many corporates. Just to name one among them is our recent skill development session where 600 youth took part. This implementation was a part of DFHL’s CSR initiative, where we conducted a world class training sessions by highly experienced experts of BFSI domain and construction sector. It was wonderful to see a large number of youth coming forward to attend this session and making it a huge success.
At SEED, we believe that programs initiated for Skill Development should create individuals who become competent enough to compete in the markets for the skills they possess. This is a feat that can only be achieved if training involves an adequate balance of theoretical knowledge and practical experience in order to master the trade. Our programs in our project areas include training in trades like electrical, computer, welding, automobile, among a wide variety of others. Keeping with this idea of a holistic training structure, students are also encouraged to take of extra classes, tests, Olympiads and practical submissions.

The “Skill India” mission was set in place by the Narendra Modi two years ago and has been fast-tracking development in the nation ever since. It is a program that understands the need to make use of the abundant labor force we have at our disposal, in a manner that uplifts their standards and raises the country’s level of development as well. The idea remains simple – give a man charity and he’ll survive for a week but teach him a skill and he will earn a livelihood. Today, on July 2015, we celebrate the two-year anniversary of Skill India and its continuous success.
