North East Projects


The North East region of India comprises of approximately 8% of our countries land bank, and only 3% of the population. With abundant natural resources, and limited employment opportunities- there lies a vast potential to "Make in the North-East".

MEL’s initiatives in North East recognizes the challenges of logistics, tribal influence, missing infrastructure, abundance of natural resources with limited means of converting or value adding, and the unavailability of an organized manufacturing sector and are aimed at converting them into opportunities. Accordingly, our Skill initiatives in this region focuses on local resources and traditional skills along with developing partnerships and infrastructure for market linkages and self-employment.

The aim of the Project is to create self-sustaining skills training, by creating a pool of trainers who can work to make the best use of the natural resources and natural basic skills.

Having a strong emphasis on market linkages – Modelama’s working to bridge the gap between the existing product skills and the skills needed to make products that have a clear demand.

Modelama Exports Ltd has engaged with partners like Siang Tea & Industries (P) Ltd., World Vision India, Impulse Social Enterprise and North East Information Technology for implementing the scheme in the centers.

Till date Modelama has trained over 700 candidates in various courses. The trainees are satisfied with the training as many of them have got placed in many organizations after their free training and their life has taken a positive turn.
