The livelihood and community development projects implemented by Green India Trust have a holistic approach encompassing many components of education, skills training, capacity building and awareness. The projects work in sync with government development programmes and facilitate linkages to public services and schemes for the project beneficiaries. Each community development project is attuned to local needs, through an initial need assessment, wherein the local needs are identified and the final design and outcomes of the project are decided. Each project aims to ultimately enable the beneficiaries to become change makers in their communities.
