Empowering tribal youth through skill development and enhancement in order to grow and strengthen the community.

In support of the Skill India Movement initiated by the Government of India, GRDP has taken up the cause to enable the community to be skilled in various fields. The lack of facilities for the education of rural children had deprived them of the employment opportunities, hence resulting in stunted growth of the community.

1 Lakh Children in Maharashtra Lack Basic Reading, Writing & Math Skills

Lack of education and career opportunities available for the talented and capable tribal youth has stunned their growth and in turn has not let their community rise up!


The BhaktiVedanta Kaushal Vikas Kendra(BKVK) is a centre that caters to the various skilling needs of the youth. It offers a Diploma in Basic Rural Technology (DBRT) Courses for training in 72 agriculture related skills, home and health, energy and environment and material technology.

BKVK is also affiliated with Vigyan Ashram at Pabal, under the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS)

Key objectives of BKVK are:

  • Training students in the philosophy of 'Learning while doing'
  • Training for livelihood through self-employment
  • Training in multiple skills
  • Training in various technologies for knowledge and skill transfer to the society
  • Involvement in various rural development activities as a project work, thus integrating rural development and education.
  • Making various services available to the community at a modest cost
  • Real-life training for enhancing life-skills
