'Bridges of Light' aims at providing skill-sets that are needed to live and survive in the area where the children live in.

Walter Tonetto says teaching children the skills needed for farming or fishing will be helpful. 

''So certain kind of key skills will be taught..so there will be upskiling all round as well as a very very broad based e-learning education model, you know, for the children"

Walter explains the training will be provided to children after getting the consent from their parents.
