OUTREACH PROGRAMS FOR SELF-HELF-GROUP (SHG) women, EDUCATED UNEMPLOYED YOUTH (EUY) & FARMERS

FIC facilities were partially used for conducting weekend (every Saturday) outreach workshop for SHG women from 2 districts (purba & paschim Medinipore), EUY and farmers. The financial support for recurring expenses for such workshops were available from PRISM project of DSIR. During 2017-2020 (prior to lock down in March 2020) 48 such workshops were conducted that immensely inspired the participants towards rural startups. A few are already in market and improved their earnings. Three workshops were dedicated for SHG women for value addition of handloom using natural fibres (banana, pineapple etc) and carbon nano materials.
