Capacity Building is one of the important verticals that BRLF has decided to work on to build the capacities of rural professionals in the country, who are otherwise not available at the grassroots. BRLF has designed a unique and innovative training program called the Certificate Program in Rural Livelihoods (CPRL) to address the challenge of scarce trained human resources at the field level particularly focused on tribal areas. BRLF has joined hands with IIHMRU, Jaipur to run this flagship Capacity Building initiative for tribal youth aged between 18 to 40 years from the Central India Tribal belt.
CPRL seeks to address the capacity building challenge for existing and aspiring rural professionals who would potentially engage as frontline functionaries of CSOs, government institutions or with offices of elected representatives of the PRIs and SHG federation leaders. It incorporates a series of capacity building modules on Rural Livelihoods, packaged as per the needs of the target groups and different institutional partners (both Government and CSOs). This certificate program is conducted at 13 locations across nine states; where BRLF supported CSOs provide field-based training on modules that they have experience and expertise in the fields.
