This a a adivasi belt and agriculture is the main source of income for them. Most of the adivasis received it as their inheritance whereas some adivasi communities were forced to go for farming due to external circumstances. All farmers had been using the traditional methods of farming which brought less produce. JVM took a step to establish an agriculture Training centre at Jhingo in 1997 to impart training in agriculture and its allied sector in more than 40 achers of land area. Some of the major training programmes given in the centre are:

a. Cultivation with SRI methodology to yield more production .
b. Training and promotion of vermi-compost/vermiculture.
c. Formation of Kisan Samiti (Nine of them are still active in different villages.
d. Animation and training programme for the village farmers and students

The purpose of RVTC is making rural dropout and unemployed youth “fit-for-life”. It is registered as a community college.
