Adolescent/Youth Empowerment- Social and economic empowerment of adolescents and youth from marginalized communities to become leaders of change

Quote:

I can deal smartly with people in my daily routine with a smile on my face. CCDT’s Saksham is always ready to support us before and even after we get the jobs. I have always wanted to become a public speaker and now I am building that skill to become one. This programme has helped me a lot to work on my skills. I have also understood through this programme that Education is not only to earn money but is also required to become a good person who works for the society. I am also conserving the environment by saving water at least in my capacity, at my home. We all should do our bit.
