“We are offering them courses like plumbing, water engineering, electrical installation, social work, cosmetology among others most of these courses are in demand in various sectors of the economy,” he said.

The Principal expressed optimism with the first government sponsored students saying that technical courses were being received well in the pastoralists’ region.

“We have enrolled 34 male and 29 female trainees who will undertake various technical courses for six months. High enrollment of youths will also see a reduction overdependence of livestock as a source of livelihood and consequently a reduction in cattle rustling in Baragoi,” Lemalasia added.
