Charanjeet Kaur* and Lavleesh Garg



Study was conducted at Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) Ferozepur district of Punjab. The KVK has been conducted Vocational/short term and In-service trainings for rural youth/farmers and extension functionaries. The present study was focused on Impact of Home Science trainings organized by KVK ferozepur. The suggestions of trainees were also taken for making improvements in future training programmes. A total of 125 trainees who have attended training programme were selected as the respondents of the study. The findings revealed that more than 62 per cent respondents were belonging to young age group and about 92 per cent respondents were educated. More than half of the respondents were belong to landless & schedule caste families. Majority of the trainees had adopted the vocational training on domestic level. About 80 per cent of the trainees who have received stitching training had adopted the occupation on self sustainable level and only 13.3 per cent had adopted as commercial level. Same trend was found in fruits and vegetable preservation training on other hand 16.6 per cent of the trainees had adopted the dying on commercial scale and 45 per cent of the trainees adopted as self sustainable level. It indicated that these training had positive monetary impact on the life of the trainees as they started earning money (who adopted on commercial scale) and others added to their family income by saving money by doing their own work rather than getting it done by others and the suggestions given by the trainees can be a good feedback for the extension personnel for planning of training programmes in future
