An Apprenticeship Mela was organised in Kulgam district of Jammu & Kashmir. The apprenticeship mela is beneficial for the youth as they get trained and after registering they get funds from the state, said officers at the event. The youth of Kulgam are happy on getting this platform where they can stand on their feet and get an opportunity for jobs. They want programmes like these to happen regularly so that all the youth can participate and decide what they would like to pursue for their career. The organisers said it is the initiative by the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha that the focus is more on the youth and their welfare. And they are hoping that the LG directs more such programmes for the youth so that they can avail maximum benefits.
