It is observed that a rural student faces the two major hurdles while choosing and
pursuing a right career:
a. Lack of “relevant information on demand” to make a life changing decision.
b. Lack of monetary and/or family support to pursue a career of his/her choice.

So far the project has supported more than 1.6 Lakh rural students and dropouts through various innovative services such as toll free Tele- counselling and career counselling workshops.
