India is a country with a maximum number of suicides in the world as per World Health Organisation. India has a large number of teen suicides who are unable to find the right path for their life and succumb to social pressures. The primary reason for suicides in India is family pressure, study pressure and unavailability of good jobs. To combat this problem, GCEC is one of its kind initiatives which aims at promoting entrepreneurship and commerce related courses for students at the undergraduate level to help them follow their dream. It aims to impart the right skills to people to become entrepreneurs and global citizens and create employment in the nation. GCEC is supported by Vivekananda Global University.
