The mobilisation team has something different to contribute. In a conversation, they shared their challenging experience. They bring these youngsters from the remote villages to the academy. First and foremost, they select the villages and thereafter make a plan on what approach should be taken in respective areas. They arrange meeting and orientation programs in the villages and directly interact with the prospective trainees and their families.
