Enterprise Education (EE) Students text book

The EE students text book for 9th class in English language was handed over to Maharashtra Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary on 04-02-2006. This is a very major milestone of success of project series C317/1678 as it represents the successful incorporation of the experience gained in the last two decades under this project into the main stream of youth empowerment, at least in one state of India i.e. Maharashtra. While the project has managed to reach its Poverty Alleviation measures to a few thousand beneficiaries every year, this inclusion of EE by the Board may ensure that the project will continue to benefit and empower several hundred thousand needy youth from falling into the trap of unemployment and poverty. This is similar to the approach taken by European Union EU and other developed countries.
