SYNOPSIS OF THE PROJECT:
This project is completely prepared after thoroughly study and analysis of present state level, national and international level scenarios, different and critical issues of promotion and development of skills of the targeted beneficiaries and of guidelines and frameworks prescribed in this regard. This project has basically been prepared for seeking financial assistance and implementing training-cum-production of pencils and alike products with resource sustainability and environment responsiveness.
It would be needless to write here the following. However, as the followings are the part of our project proposal therefore we should have fast track bird eyes on this as skill development involved in the subject matter is an education that prepares people for specific trades, crafts and careers at various levels specially in the proposed sector/trade. The proposed sector/trade is usually based on manual or practical activities, traditionally non-academic, related to a specific trade, occupation, or vocation. Besides, It is completely resource sustainable and environment responsive. It is sometimes referred to as technical education as the trainee directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques.
The Proposed Sector/Trade and the activities involved in the project may be classified as teaching procedural knowledge. This can be contrasted with declarative knowledge, as used in skill development rigorously in a usually broader scientific field, which might concentrate on theory and abstract conceptual knowledge, characteristic of tertiary education. Pencils and allied products making with the use of old and scrape newspapers and waste papers in the proposed sector/trade/project can be at the secondary, post-secondary level, further education level and can interact with the apprenticeship system.
In addition to what we have described somewhere else in the project report, we would like to brief about the projects herein.
This project is a very important aspect of the development of individuals and India as well because The pen and pencil have become most important items required by the students and along with exercise book, pen and pencil constitute the major segment of the school supplies which are mostly purchased in the market by the student. At present, there are no manufacturing facilities for the production of pen and pencil in Bhutan and the requirement is being met through imports from India.
Pencils, his research showed, are one of the biggest reasons for tree-cutting. And, despite competition from their mechanical counterparts and pens, pencil sales grew globally. What's more, there was no one in the city manufacturing eco-friendly pencils.
The production process of ecofriendly pencils is semi-automatic and simple: pre-cut graphite lead and recycled paper are inserted into a machine, which rapidly applies glue, rolls the paper tight around the lead and compresses it. In addition, the most environment responsive things are besides all these is that at the end of use of this pencils can be used as seeds of various plants which can be grown up by planting the residual waste of such pencils anywhere simply even by throwing up on the soils across us.
This project will uplift the economical conditions of not only people who would be part of it but also it will contribute in nation development with sustainable and eco-responsive ways.
In this project, we need to do the development of skills of Youth and Women who are poor and marginalized and don’t have any such platform to their upliftment by getting them involved in this project of Training-cum-Production of Eco-responsive and sustainable resource development with the due respect of nature. The main objectives for running this project which had been set out as hereunder :
  1. To organize and empower poor for equal access and opportunities in the development process.
  2. To make efforts to minimize poverty, exploitation, injustice, illiteracy and superstition from the society.
  3. To create awareness among the people about their health rights and duties. To create livelihood opportunities. To improve community health emphasizing on mother & child health.

We all are well known about the living conditions of such Indian youths and women and more particularly about Indian Target youths and women who are poor and marginalized and such Indian Target Youths and Women are the targeted potential beneficiaries of this project. We have decided to implement this project in the New Delhi, State of Bihar & Jharkhand Moreover, we do hereby try to highlights about the facts of targeted beneficiaries in the said proposed geographical location.
Inadequate communication facilities are a deterrent to mobility and accessing skill development, higher education and health care especially for youths and women in such areas. Target populations severely lack access to basic amenities including proper education and training. Since managing the household chores is generally a woman’s task, not having easy access to a platform from where such youths and women can step up towards themselves, their families and the overall economy of India too. Efforts to provide these basic amenities, especially in such areas, can help in improving the condition of youths and women tremendously.
With the help of this project, our organization can provide its services to targeted group of beneficiaries in the proposed location and near thereby during the project duration and thereafter we will continue this services on sustainable basis so that objectives of this project can be gradually achieved and spread over the period to period.
RELEVANCE OF THE PROJECT:
As all we know that the proposed sector of Manufacturing of Eco-responsive and resource Sustainable Paper Pencils and allied products is a wide ranging sector and has vital future and great potentials in this sector from viewpoints of jobs/employment generations and self employments/ entrepreneurship generation as well.
This product is finite resources to meet up long term global natural resources in terms of pollution free and tress/plantation development crisis. The recent such crisis and environmental burden are becoming increasingly urgent and drawing enormous attention to eco-responsive utilization. The present study is intended to review on recent advances in developing the said products in the said manner to keep before us the best eco-friendly and sustainable product making and employment generating. In addition, let us put here our thoughts with the following words “When you think of pencils, you probably think of childhood, the smell of fresh stationery, and the knack you always had for losing them. It’s not often that you think about the environmental effects of using these 19cm lead and wood writing sticks. “All over the world, 15 billion pencils are being made; one billion in India alone. All of this destroys trees and a lot of forest cover is destroyed. Moreover, deforestation is one of the predominant factors for drought. Deforestation is also one of the reasons floods occur. One of the major causes of deforestation are pencils. Speaking of the perception problem that forced them to innovate, When We say cutting trees, no one thinks of a pencil as one of the main reasons for a tree being cut. We were wondering if there is a way that can replace the wooden pencils with pencils made out recycled paper.
This project is an important element of the nation’s education and GDP initiatives with nature savings. In order for Skill Development to play its part effectively in the changing national context and for India to enjoy the fruits of the demographic dividend, there is an urgent need to redefine the critical elements of imparting Skill Development and training to make them flexible, contemporary, relevant, inclusive and creative. In nutshell, we would like to summarize the relevance of the project as hereunder:
  • The proposed area has a great future and potentials as the reasons already stated here above.
  • Constantly diminishing of Natural Resources and its resultants.
  • Cost of such products per unit will higher in the near future.
  • The demand for such product is always on increase and it cannot be met only by traditional way out because they are not viable, feasible and eco-responsive any more.
  • So considering all these facts there is an increase in awareness among Indians both for domestic and industrialist purposes.
  • Sustainable Solution to their current problems.
  • Creates a big job Opportunities and Entrepreneurship in this sectors and income source.
  • An asset which not only enables them but let them help others.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT :
  1. To organize and empower poor for equal access and opportunities in the development process.
  2. To make efforts to minimize poverty, exploitation, injustice, illiteracy and superstition from the society.

PROBLEM STATEMENTS
As noted earlier, the aim of this project, particularly in case of youths and women, is not merely to prepare them for jobs, but also to improve the performance of women workers by enhancing the quality of work in which they are engaged. We have identified a few of the major challenges, which need to be addressed for building a conducive ecosystem, of skill development for the women workforce. These are as follows, “(i) the large number of women who need to be trained since currently only 2% of the female workforce is formally trained, (ii) inadequacies in the quality and relevance of TVET (technical and vocational employment training in India), (iii) inadequate Infrastructure, acute shortage of trained youths and women workers, poor quality of training, (iv) lack of mechanisms to judge and certify quality, (v) inequity in access to TVET for youths and women (vi) low level of education of potential omen trainees that limits training of youths and women in the formal sector, (vii) lack of recognition of prior learning of potential youths and women trainees (viii) relatively high opportunity cost of learning involved for training youths and women.
In addition, the main challenges faced by target youths and women achieve skills are at administrable level, socio-economic background, political etc. Some of the challenges faced by such youths and women are as follows:
Lack of Confidence: Due to differential socialization social norms, morals in the family target youths and women lack confidence, support, and decision making powers needed for the growth of an entrepreneur. Decision making power related to business activities is less due to economic dependent and domination of male headed society.
Dual Responsibility: With the dual roles as, wife and mother women unable to manage the enterprise effectively because of lack of time, concentration and overburdened personal obligations.
Finance Problem: There is no sufficient fund to execute enough programmes to meet numerous political and our target areas. The multiplicity of schemes is not adequately listed nor is there networking among agencies. As a result, clients approaching one institution are not made aware of the best option for their requirements.
Illiteracy among Target youths and women: The literacy rate of youths and women in India is found at low level compared to male population. The target youths and women are ignorant of new technology or unskilled. They are often unable to do research & gain the necessary training. The uneducated target youths and women do not have the knowledge of measurement and basic accounting.
Need of Training and Development: Indian families and society provide training to a girl to make her as a good wife rather than to uplift her as an entrepreneur she is not allowed to develop network with other business men, which is considered as a sin and bad culture.
Political Interference/Political Patronage: Most of the contracts awarded by the Agency went to loyalists and political lackeys of the political leaders. Projects locations are always influenced by political consideration and not where they are mostly needed by the poors.
Insufficient Professional Personnel: The Agency executed most of its Programmes through 'contractors due to paucity of personnel especially the highly skilled and professional staff like the Economists (only one), the Accountants (only two), the Statistician (only one), and the Lawyers (none) and others. Even the few monitoring staff available has no sufficient assets to use for projects monitoring which are running for the upliftment.
Lack of infrastructure and widespread Corruption: There are also the other problems for the target youths and women. Target youths and women lack training and advisory services on managerial and technical skills to solve production problems. Here more than 70 percent of enterprises are micro- and small enterprises but their growth and the competitiveness is greatly challenged by a lack of business management, marketing and technical skills besides the overall weak infrastructure and complicated legal frameworks for business processes, especially in global online transaction context.
RESULTING IN OF THE PROBLEM STATEMENTS:
Mainly, the results of such problems are (a) Lack of income, (b) Lack of food, (c) Lack of skills and, (d) lack of education and, (e) Lake of Good Health and besides all this lacking followings are also the results of such a problem in target area.
  1. Problems of unemployment and proper utilization of both human and non-human resources and improving the living conditions of the poor masses.
  2. Result in Lack of Improving household productivity, employability and income-earning opportunities for target youths and women and also Lack of for enhancing food security and promoting environmentally sustainable development and livelihoods
  3. Result in the gaps and disparities in income of target and urban people.
