The MITA Organic Food Processing initiative aims to improve the lives of recovered unemployed youth by providing training and establishing equitable markets for their products and by promoting safe and healthy food. Support this initiative through financial contributions and prayer.
In Mokokchung town, Nagaland in northern India, high rates of unemployment are badly affecting young people. There are very few available jobs in the area, which means that students graduating from high school or college have very few options for work; their futures are bleak. Many are struggling with mental health challenges and falling into addictions, because they feel they have no hope for a future. In addition to the high unemployment rate, social unrest and other related problems are also on the rise.
CBM’s partnership with ABC is providing structure, training, and opportunities for recovered unemployed youth to produce organic processed fruit and vegetable products so they can earn an equitable wage to augment their family’s income helping with basic needs such as food, clothing, and healthcare. These new employment opportunities are giving them hope for a better future.
