Youth are the future of the country and any investment made on them will be fruitful for the overall development of the society. Indian Army has been conducting various ‘Perception Management’ projects in the state of J&K for overall development of the Human Resource in the state. Keeping this in view a Photography and Videography Cadre for unemployed youth of Mendhar tehsil was organised at Chhatral Youth Club, Chhatral by Rashtriya Rifles Battalion under Romeo Force from 09 to 14 February 2015.
28 youths from Mendhar tehsil were benefitted from Photography and Videography Cadre and were trained in handling of cameras, capturing of pictures and method of printing photographs. The cadre besides the basic skills of photography also provided career guidance to the unemployed youth.
The attendees applauded the efforts of the Army in organizing such activities which generate skill developments and self employment avenues for the youth.
Youth all over Jammu and Kashmir are struggling with the lack of jobs and such campaigns have their own benefit. Such training empowers the youth in various vocational branches such that the youth can fend for themselves and their families. It is important to note that even the recent outgoing elections were influenced greatly by the youth of Jammu and Kashmir and roti, bijli and makaan – all outcomes of employment – were the prime requirements across the population of the state.
