STI HUB in Mizoram : Improving Tribal Livelihoods, Education & Sustainability

Mizoram, one of the seven states of the North East Region of India, is a beautiful land of rolling hills, rivers, and lakes. While literacy rates are high, Mizoram also has a high number of unemployed, and the rugged land makes ease of doing business a major challenge. Substance abuse has been identified as a rising concern among young people here. Health indicators highlight the high prevalence of anaemia in children, adolescent girls and women, and growing non-communicable diseases [NCD] including various types of cancers. 

Under a grant from the Department of Science and Technology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in collaboration with Mizoram University, plans to build Science, Technology & Innovation Hubs in the districts of Aizawl and Serchhip to promote sustainable livelihoods through Capacity Building and Skill Development for tribal communities. 

The STI Hub is a collaborative initiative taken by the government and private sectors to address key challenges, provide sustainable solutions and create a thriving ecosystem in the state of Mizoram, paving the way for a brighter future.
