Skills Training for Advancement in Rural Societies

Why STARS Forum

STARS (Skills Training for Advancement in Rural Societies) Forum was established in 2010 with the objective of constituting a common platform for NGOs and individuals working in the area of knowledge-transfer of relevant marketable/vocational skills in rural and tribal populations and also among the urban poor anywhere in India, for mutual support and to advance this field by providing a forum to dialog, problem solve, and facilitate sharing and evolution of best practices & innovative approaches so as to reach as many needy people as possible through practical, relevant and cost effective ways.

The SkillsGuru has created a meaningful comprehensive quality library of distant learning resources to enhance well rounded training of livelihood skills, with an easily accessible user-friendly Learning Management System (LMS), to improve post-training success in entrepreneurship or gainful employment for economic enhancement.
