Indian Army began an effort to empower women from remote villages in Kishtwar district and make their economic independence through a reorientation course that taught Tailoring & Stitching.
This unique training program was offered from 14 February 2022 to April 2022. It was attended by nine women from the Gahan area.
This venture had two goals: to make women economically self-sufficient and raise their social standing. The enthusiasm shown by the locals at the implementation of this project by the Indian Army is a testament to the appreciation of the Awam.
The course was led by the Indian Army and the District Social Welfare Department. Certificates were given in collaboration with NSDC to recognize successful completion. The guests spoke on the sidelines at the closing ceremony and said that the Indian Army’s virtuous efforts will help alleviate poverty and hunger in the region and bring more harmony and community.
The beneficiaries and the villagers thanked the Indian Army for their noble initiative and the opportunity to learn skills that will allow them to make a decent living.
