NABARD distributes tailoring kits to SHGs in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh
Diyun, Nov 11 (KNN) Under the NABARD’s livelihood & enterprise development programme (LEDP), the Itanagar-based regional office on Thursday distributed tailoring kits to SHGs in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh.
The tailoring kits have been distributed to the Ninety SHG members who have enrolled in the sewing machine operator training programme. The programme will be implemented by NGO BLCCT, in collaboration with CCRMS Changlang.
The Primary aim of this initiative is to empower rural women to enhance their income and become self-reliant.
Speaking on the occasion, NABARD District Development Manager Kamal Roy said that “skill upgrading training alone has a limited impact on livelihood creation among the SHG members; it was thought prudent to create sustainable livelihoods among SHG members, and to attain optimum benefit out of skill upgrading.”
“The LEDP envisages the conduct of livelihood promotion programmes in clusters. There is provision for intensive training for skill building, refresher training, backward-forward linkages, and handholding support for SHGs,” he said.
CCRMS DPC Nonju Tikhak advised the SHG members to “implement the programme for starting successful entrepreneurship,” and lauded the NABARD and the BLCCT for their initiative.
BLCCT president Chandan Prasad said that the training will enable rural women to improve their skills in producing designable clothes and garments. (KNN Bureau)
