This ideology holds for CEDMAP which is a dynamic, empathetic 34-year-old fully autonomous government organization working on entrepreneurship development, large-scale inclusion, and livelihood. As its Executive Director, it is an honour and privilege for me to be a part of this magnanimous journey toward the economic growth of the country.

As a die-hard philanthropist, it was my heartiest desire to work in an organization that is committed to the upliftment of the millions of people in our society. CEDMAP has given me that platform since it is diligently working towards generating livelihoods for people especially the deprived and underprivileged.

For decades CEDMAP with its noble and philanthropic vision has strived for 100% employment/self-employment. This has been possible due to Innovation, inclusion, and a demarcated sustainable economic growth of the society through employment, self-employment, skill upgradation, and allied services.

Before the pandemic, the scenario was very scintillating but post-pandemic it has become quite heart-wrenching. Millions of people lost not only their family members but the only source of their livelihood too. Lakhs of businesses closed shops and the situation was alarmingly critical for start-ups and their founders. In such an ambiance our organization and our team have taken up this empathetic mission to aid Entrepreneurship development, training, skilling, capacity building of fresh ideas, clusters development, research and surveys, Financial Inclusion, Manpower outsourcing, etc.

With this perspective, we are introducing scores of productive new projects on innovative concepts with the objective of employment, self-employment- livelihood for all. For the sustainability of qualitative and outcome-oriented results, we are launching management through e-governance for utmost transparency and achieving the core vision of CEDMAP THAT IS EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES AND EARNINGS FOR ALL.

The revolutionary and brilliant ideas of the youth need to become a reality. They can be game changers if they get the mandatory counselling towards career & vocation, learning & skill development.
