Apex Level Infrastructure

Developing ideal infrastructure both at the Apex Level and at the Cluster Level is one of the major components of this project. The Apex Level Infrastructure is the hub center for all Swarojgaries, which has come up at Belthangady Taluq, Dakshina Kannada district.

The Cluster Level common facility center to take up various non-farm sector activities is another special feature of SGSY Special Project.An Apex level common facility center built in a sprawling 2.2-acre campus has become a State Level Resource Center for the Swarojgaries. The center is organizing the backward and forward linkages, create raw material bank and provide storage facilities for finished goods for the benefit of the Swarojgaries. This is also acting as a hubcenter for Swarojgaries from distant places, to acquire information, training and develop skill on various income generation activities. This center has been planned in such a way that once a Swarojgari enters this building he will get complete information pertaining to his venture.

The centre has amenities such as a full fledged training centre, godowns, storehouses, library, laboratories etc.

Bhoruka – SKDRDP Center for Rural Excellence (CRE)

The Swarna Jayanthi Gram Swarojgar Yojana Programme has offered much opportunities for the rural poor to venture in to various income generation activities. The SHG concept and group enterprises appproach Swarna Jayanthi Gram Swarojgar Yojana Programme. The much required credit support is now available to the rural women through her SHG or through the government subsidy programme.

However in-spite of the availability of credit, the rural poor community is unable to take up variable self-employment ventures for want of proper information on the activities, necessary skills, capacities for up-scaling and entrepreneurial skills. To eliminate these drawbacks, the Center for Rural Excellence (CRE) has been setup by SKDRDP in collaboration with M/s Bhoruka Charities. The organization's name is Bhoruka – SKDRDP Center for Rural Excellence (CRE). The organization focuses on training which is an very important support for taking up self-ventures.
