Indian Development Foundation (IDF) has come up with Centre of Excellence - a holistic sustainable development model. IDF CofE is a great boon for empowering youth in this country. It is a kind of finishing school for the graduates/ engineering students who will be trained before they enter the market. We could see a large number of graduates/ engineers from rural India are unemployable despite their qualifications. Youth development should be taken as a cause and we thought it fit to take it through IDF CofE. Incidentally, the centre at Bangalore also works for women empowerment and also includes a IDF Bal Gurukul.
