NEED FOR ORGANISING THIS WORKSHOP
Karkar village is a home to approximately 70,000 migrants who have shifted here to earn money. During our frequent visits to the village our major focus has been to provide opportunities to the Ghunghat-clad women whose dreams are often neglected by the society. Since, then we have deployed mentors to impart skill development courses like beauty parlor and tailoring courses on aregular basis. Looking at the progress of the women who have joined the respective batches, we were determined to introduce more workshops for them and regularly track their progress. This led to organizing an Agarbatti Training Workshop in association with CSIR-CIMAP & HPPI. A one day workshop which not only acts as an additional income resource for the participants but also contributes towards healthy environment. To access the detailed report of this workshop Click Here
