I.N.D.I.A. TRUST UPDATES
SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP


Today in our society every family wants to develop their educational, economic and social status and thereby achieve happiness, harmony, peace and success. How to achieve? Is it possible? There are millions of industries, thousands of colleges and schools, hundreds of Universities, countless scientists, educationists, management specialists, professionals, world class Knowledge Managers. And yet we are still considered a developing nation.
Our human development index is pitiably at a very low level. The role of government becomes ambiguous between private and public partnership. A country cannot be strong if it has weak and poor people. I.N.D.I.A Trust has its objective in fulfilling the dreams of that ordinary individual to become rich, healthy and wealthy because we know an average family can achieve a paradigm shift in their family with a change in their economic status

By virtue of the experience gained in the last twenty years I.N.D.I.A Trust has understood that the greatest problem the nation is facing is UNDER-UTILISATION OF THE TALENTS AND ENERGY OF EDUCATED YOUTH.
Every young man and woman nurtures dreams to achieve a certain educational, social and economic status in his/her life. These men and women, who are predominantly from middle income group of families, shelve their dreams during their course of education and end up taking pecuniary jobs for survival, thereby putting an end to their dreams for success.

DURING THE LAST 61 YEARS, INDEPENDENT INDIA HAS CREATED MILLIONS OF UNDEREMPLOYED,UNEMPLOYED AND UNEMPLOYABLE EDUCATED DERELICTS.

Till today most of the career opportunities have been in the nature of employment in government or private sector.
BUT, THERE HAS BEEN A SUSTAINABLE INTEREST AMONG THE YOUTH TO BE ENTREPRENEURS
PORTRAYING A CONSIDERABLE INCLINATION TOWARDS SELF-EMPLOYMENT.

Just a look at the Indian economic conditions, Government policies, Banking rules and regulations, Social stigmas, Family Expectations, Educational Leadership, Role Models and Mentors;and one will find three deterrent factors that has been consistently playing a negative role in the minds of budding entrepreneurs.
A. NON AVAILABILITY OF SEED CAPITAL
B. NO FACILITY TO INCUBATE CREATIVE IDEAS
C. UNMET ASPIRATIONS BECAUSE OF PARENTS AND ‘SIGNIFICANT’ OTHERS

I.N.D.I.A Trust has always believed that young educated men and women of our nation have tremendous potential but only lack opportunities.
