The means of ‘securing the necessities of life’ is livelihood. YFS works relentlessly towards building livelihood mainly through ‘Women Empowerment’ & ‘Reviving our Rural Economy’. Our Livelihood projects facilitate and focus in the areas of
“Raising the Bar, Changing Lives, Building Hope”
Youth for Seva opens sustainable pathways for people to build livelihood of life in and around their homes and villages. Our projects have successfully built a demand and supply chain link by connecting individuals/livelihood centres with logical destinations and sustainable markets.
YFS Livelihood initiatives create real-time changes in the lives of women and rural population.
Two years ago, I got physically disabled in a motor vehicle accident, unable to work in the sun and in the yard. It was difficult for us as a low-income family to run the household and afford our children’s education. Knowing little sewing skills, I could get comprehensive training free of cost. Now, having expertise in sewing clothing, I can sew school children’s uniform and men’s shirts. It is comforting to know that I can meet my needs as I join the Women’s Self-Help Association, which will allow me to share my skills. Working together under the same roof will lead us to become financially independent and even give us better opportunities to manage and take care of our family.

Living alone at home, I relied on work in the fields for a livelihood. It was almost impossible to buy essential everyday items when there were no days off. After three months. I got a job as a food processing plant operator. My daily routine involves grinding flour, chilli, and many other spices. Through this I earn Rs.5,000/- a month and can support my family. These developments have brought many changes in my life over the past three months, and I have learned business-related skills apart from my regular work. I expect a few more women from similar backgrounds to work in this unit in next few days and become independent like me.
