Skill Development Programs
The need for giving emphasis on the Skill Development, especially for the less educated, poor and out of school youth has been highlighted in various forums. The skill level and educational attainment of the work force determines the productivity, income levels as well as the adaptability of the working class in changing environment.  Large percentage of population in India is living below poverty line.  One of the important causes is lower percentage of skilled persons in the workforce.

The skill development at present is taking place mostly in the informal way, i.e. persons acquire skill at the work-place when they help their parents, relatives and employers etc.  Such persons do not have a formal certificate and thus earn lower wages and are exploited by employers.  They have come through informal system due to socio-economic circumstances of the family and the compulsions of earning a livelihood rather than attending a formal course.  While their productivity is low, their contribution to the national GDP cannot be ignored.  If the country can create a system of certification which not only recognizes their skills but also provides education and training in a mode that suits their economic compulsions, it will not only benefit the workforce to earn a decent living but also contribute to the national economy by better productivity of this workforce. In view of the above SAVE has initiated lots of Skill development programs which are as follows:
