Deprived youth become entrepreneurs


Underprivileged youth, who have turned entrepreneurs.

The unit named a Echo-Choco Ice Cream Parlour, located in Kamanahalli, opposite to BSNL is a project exclusively managed by the youth of Echo.

Boost to confidence

After rehabilitation of these boys by way of training and regular counselling they are now filled with confidence to start with confidence to start this ice cream parlour along with chaats and juice. 

The objective of this project is to make these youth self-reliant. The profits of this business will be used for improving the youth’s welfare programmes. The surplus funds will be ploughed back into their own business for expanding the projects on a larger scale by opening other outlets in various parts of the City.
