Udyam Program

Udyam Program is Gramonnati’s flagship program. Under this program, we plan to develop selected youth, women and ex-soldiers as rural entrepreneurs. This path-to-entrepreneurship program is envisaged to be multi-stage and varies with each group viz. youth, women and ex-soldiers. Each Program will typically be spread over a period of 18-24 months. Typically, it will have four levels of trainings and engagements with potential and selected participants of the program. The four levels are:

  • Level – 0: Awareness Sessions
  • Level – 1: Foundational Trainings
  • Level – 2: Skill Development and basics of entrepreneurship
  • Level – 3: Internship with Institutions, Startups / Entrepreneurs, setup of micro-enterprise under Gramonnati (with mentoring and micro-finance support)

Approach to Learning by Udyam Trainees

Through these programs, we hope to instill the following qualities in every Udyam Trainee, and through them, every student of Gramonnati trainings:

  • Self-learning (as learning is a life-long process).
  • “Learning-by-doing” as the most effective way to learn (all our programs are project driven and through hands-on learning.)
  • Develop ability for problem – solving and innovation in our daily lives.
  • Learn to observe oneself through self-reflection.
