Youth Empowerment

Apraava Energy works towards addressing the skill gap amongst the rural youth and youth from economically disadvantaged backgrounds by supporting the students with training courses and vocational education through effective partnerships.

Key Initiatives

The Jai Jawan Raksha Academy is a state-of-the-art academy developed to train the youth of Haryana with a passion to serve the country.  

To provide the right infrastructure for the youth to excel, Apraava Energy has developed Jai Jawan Raksha Academy in partnership with Deepalaya, near its JPL plant in Jhamri village of Haryana. The academy aims to provide structured academic and physical coaching for 250 youth every year who are aspiring to join the army, paramilitary and police forces.  

The academy is constructed on five acres of panchayat’s land and operationalized in the year 2021-22. Its  infrastructure facilities include having well equipped classrooms, a library, an open ground, running track, chin-up and balancing beam for physical training and all other facilities required for quality training. Significantly, it has army retired coaches to train the youth as well. 

This is part of the company’s commitment to nurturing the youth of India to lead tomorrow.
 

Apraava Energy through its partnership with School of Skill Education, Tata Institute of Social Sciences skilled over 2000 youth aspiring to work in healthcare, renewable and allied sectors. Launched right before covid outbreak, the project reached out to the most deserving and needy students from across 33 districts of 12 states in the country. Apraava is proud to have 70% girls enrolled into these courses bringing sunshine in the lives of the young students. 

Moreover, in the business catchments of Telangana and Tamil Nadu, local youth and women were trained in desktop publishing courses, retail, tailoring, embroidery courses.
 

Empowering Women through Skill Development:

In a comprehensive three-year project in empowering community through skill development and environment conservation project at Telangana, Apraava caters to 17 catchment villages around our wind and solar business sites in CREPL, DSPL and Veltoor.

At the heart of this initiative is the skill-based livelihood center where 20 selected women and youth underwent intensive training in advanced tailoring and embroidery courses. To provide holistic support, Apraava equipped these women with modern, high-speed, and durable machines along with its accessories nurturing their entrepreneurial spirit and bolstering their confidence.

Former beedi rollers, once bearing the brunt of significant health implications have now transitioned into full time tailoring and embroidery, finding fulfilment and satisfaction in their work. Notably, a woman has established her business in a store employing another woman and earning a decent income in a dignified manner.

Through our commitment to skill development and community empowerment, Apraava Energy continues to catalyze positive change and foster sustainable livelihoods in Telangana.
