Recognizing the need to facilitate the disabled with basic livelihood skills training and provide widened employment opportunities, ‘Livelihood Resource Centre’ (LRC) was conceptualized by Samarthanam in 1999. Samarthanam LRC provides technical and sector based skill training to youth with disabilities and from underserved backgrounds. The centre grooms their skills and makes them ready for their entry into the corporate world.

Samarthanam LRCs have been supporting youth from rural regions of India through its centres spread across Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Tamilnadu, Delhi, Kerala States of India. The Resource Centres are equipped with accessible infrastructure to support persons with disabilities including ramps, wheelchairs, railings (for persons with physical disabilities), JAWS software, Braille and audio books (for persons with visual disabilities), signs and boards (for persons with hearing impairments).
