Integrated Rural Development
Swami Vivekananda said that in India, our first and foremost task is the spread of education and spirituality among the lower sections of our society. Unless such people have the means for adequate food and health, it is difficult for them to know the greater value of our spiritual heritage.
The goal of the Integrated Rural Development Programmes of the Ramakrishna Mission aims at making the lower and helpless sections of the society economically self-sufficient as well as strong in spiritual character and personality.
In this effort, Periodical Free Residential Agricultural Training Camps are held for rural youth. In these camps apart from hands on training in the campus and specialised facilities, the youth are given knowledge about holistic personality development through Yoga, Meditation and shramdan
So far three such camps have been held on subjects like horticulture, food processing and farm machinery. Faculty and experts from Agri university, dept of agriculture and others assist us in this.
