The Jaipur Xavier Educational Association (JXEA) was established in 1950, as a trust managed by the Jesuits. In 2006 the Xavier Vocational Institute (XVI) was started in Jaipur to give vocational training to the economically poorer sections of society.
In 2010 the JXEA, in collaboration with the Xavier Alumni and the well-wishers of Jaipur, took the lead in the "higher education programme" by starting St. Xavier's College, Jaipur. It is affiliated to the University of Rajasthan. It is established and maintained by the members of the Delhi province of the Society of Jesus.
St. Xavier's College, Jaipur has been making rapid strides in its pursuit of excellence at par with other Jesuit institutions of higher learning, since its inception. The skills and knowledge that is needed in the 21st century in the global context are being imparted with broad-based academic curriculum.
India has been predominantly an agriculture based economy, where more than half of its work force depend on agriculture for their living.
While the share of agriculture in gross domestic product has substantially declined over the years, a similar but rather slow decline has been seen in dependence of workforce on agricultural sector, resulting in slow growth in incomes of those dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods. With the changing farming practices over the years, regional disparities with respect to crop output, decline in poverty resulted in rising inequalities.
A precondition for development is advances in management and entrepreneurship in agriculture and agri-business as well as in value addition and linkages within agriculture and to non-agriculture sectors. Appropriate policies in these areas from governments, development agencies, donors and multinational companies will be key to ensure rural economic development.
