Apart from providing formal education, SFORD project its efforts to support the rural youth for higher studies also.
Due to lack of career awareness in the rural youth of surrounding villages, SFORD provides regular counseling to them. Motivating them for higher studies is a part of the process. SFORD provides academic and financial assistance to them for further studies. So far, approx. 48 rural youth have been benefitted with the support of SFORD through enrollment in National Open School and Kota Open University.
SFORD’s internship program provides an opportunity to add knowledge about the rural development sector through hands-on experience. With this approach, SFORD hosts interns for the completion of their projects in the respective streams.
Interns have come to SFORD from the various Institutions from which few are as below:
NIRMA University, Ahmedabad, Gujarat ( Institute of Law )
