RUDSETI, INDIA: THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TRAINING MODEL AND IN EMPOWERING THE RURAL YOUTH FOR SELF-EMPLOYMENT
In 1982, India's economy was primarily agrarian. After a deep drop in 1979, the Indian GDP rate of growth was around 5%, with an unemployment rate gradually increasing from approximately 4% from 1979 to 1982. Rural Development and Self-Employment Training Institute (RUDSETI) was founded by a religious leader in a small Southern Indian village with the support of two banking institutions during this time. The success of RUDSETI and its pioneering initiatives to empower Indian rural kids to live a dignified life are recorded in this case study. Students will be invited to examine this successful training programme and consider how to replicate it in the BRICS countries.
