Rural Development

Education, entrepreneurship, physical infrastructure, and social infrastructure all play an important role in developing rural regions. Hence Navodaya Foundation refers to the process of improving the quality of life and economic wellbeing of people living in relatively isolated and sparsely populated areas. Rural India which encompasses three fourths of the Country's population is characterized by low income levels, inadequate to ensure a quality of life compatible with physical well being. Rural development has traditionally centered on the exploitation of land-intensive natural resources such as agriculture and forestry.

However, changes in global production networks and increased urbanization have changed the character of rural areas. Navodaya Foundation spearheading the frontal attack on rural poverty, through its various programmer endeavored to reach out to the last and most disadvantaged sections of society, provide them with avenues of employment, be it self-employment or wage-employment, and to improve infrastructure relating to their life support systems. Rural development actions are mainly and mostly to development aim for the social and economic development of the rural areas. The need for rural communities to approach development from a wider perspective has created more focus on a broad range of development goals rather than merely creating incentive for agricultural or resource based businesses.

Training has gained an important position in rural development activities concerning various poverty alleviation programmers.
