DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION (INTERNATIONAL) SOCIETY, DEIS
The Vision of Development Education (International) Society, DEIS is
Poverty Alleviation and prevention through Enterprise Development in India:
'Poverty Alleviation' shall be attempted, in the short term, by making enterprise information and training available and accessible to the target group, of poor and disadvantaged, through the intervention and use of mass media and field programmes. The effort will be such that the target group can reinforce and build on their own development capacities and consequently overcome their economic poverty.
