Though central and state governments implementing various schemes to uplift the rural poor, the poverty is still continuing. Because, most of the people living in India have no enough hold, up to their self-support to improve their present status and changing their lifestyle. In view of the fact, that the reduction of rural poverty through education, information and livelihoods promotion has been a unifying goal.
