Nai Manzil Scheme, Bihar

Nai Manzil aims to engage constructively with poor Minority youth and help them obtain sustainable and gainful employment opportunities that can facilitate them to be integrated with mainstream economic activities.  Specific objectives of the project for the next five years are as follows:

i. Mobilise youth from minority communities who are school drop-outs and provide them with formal education and certification up to level 8th or 10th through National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) or other State open schooling systems.

ii. As part of the programme, provide integrated Skill Training to the youth in market driven skills.

iii. Provide placements to at least 70% of the trained youth in jobs which would earn them basic minimum wages and provide them with other social protection entitlements like Provident Funds, Employee State Insurance (ESI) etc.

iv. Raise awareness and sensitization in health and life skills.
