Village Knowledge Centre
Village Knowledge Centres are intended to serve as information dissemination centres providing instant access to farmers to latest information/ knowledge available in the field of agriculture, starting from crop production to marketing. Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) has, through dynamic training and internship programmes, produced and is continuing to produce thousands of skilled and equipped youth from Kerala, sifting them out on the basis of passion and efficiency. After gaining hours of practical training in Communication Skills, IT Skills and an industry skill that the student has opted, the number of skilled youths in Kerala with training complying with NSQF over the years totals over one lakh. It is to equip them further and enhance their employability ratio that ASAP has come up with the ground-breaking initiative of Community Skill Parks (CSPs).
