" Overview

Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) is a National Level Organization established by the Krishak Bharti Cooperative Limited (KRIBHCO) with the support of Government of India and Department for International Development (DFID), UK. GVT was started as a division of KRIBHCO to look after Eastern India Rainfed Projects (EIRFP) and Western India Rainfed Projects (WIRFP) in some states by forming several clusters in tribal areas for the upliftment of the tribals. However, with the passage of time, from 2010 onwards, GVT not only diversified its activities, but also its geographical presence.

Vocational skill changes a Life completely
Girish Gohil of Goladra village completed his graduation in the year 2010-11. After completion of his graduation he is unable to get a job was simply whiling away his time not knowing what to do and how to get a job. He was completely frustrated that in spite of being a graduate he could not support his family
One day, he came to know about the vocational training centre of Gram Vikas Trust through an awareness workshop in his village. The Basic computer course seemed interesting and hence he enrolled for this 3-month training. He worked really hard and also started participating in computer awareness activities of the centre.
After completing the course, he enrolled himself in the placement cell of the centre. He learnt of a vacancy in ABG Shipyard and sent his application. He went for the interview and got selected. Today he feels so proud of having joined the vocational centre. It has changed his life completely.
