Livelihood Resource Unit

The Livelihood Resource Unit (LRU) believes that people, their capabilities and their means of living are to be taken while making any intervention in the livelihood sector. Livelihood Unit works towards achieving “A Hunger-Free Society”. The thrust is to systematically tap the potentialities in the farm, non farm and off farm sector to create vibrant, sustainable and profitable livelihoods options in the state. The preference of the project is being proposed in service deficient/remote/interior/backward tribal areas to benefit SC & ST communities of the state.
