Jobs! Jobs!! Empowering for Jobs!!!

The Government of India had passed an Act in 2005 to give at least 100 days of work to the people through the Act called the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act. This is a demand-driven service of the government--i.e., if anyone wants job, they need to have a job card and then apply for work. But due to various problems in implementation, this project of the government has not been going well. Social Welfare Institute has been creating awareness among people to help them access this great resource of the government. Now, Social Welfare Institute, and PRIA are planning a strategic partnership in promoting NREGA in two blocks of Malda district. If everything goes well, 50,000 families will be benefited.
