A thirteen day training programme was organized by the KSSDS for the 30 SHG women of Barasat. The ladies were extra enthusiastic and energetic to begin their training on cushion making, which will bring in a very good source of income and to impart value based knowledge for their better health and happy living.
The training began with a symbolic prayer moments with prayer and bhajans, followed by offering all their instruments and the accessories required for the training to get the Divine blessings. Sr.Superior Sr. Lily Perumpettikunnel, Sr.Leelamma the KSSDS Coordinator, Ms.Milli Chatterjee and Mrs.Sarathy Mittro, the trainers and Mrs.Regina representing the participants were called on to light the Lamp after which Ms.Alphonsa KSSDS Staff read a passage from the Bible. The prayer moment was concluded by the valuable words of Sr.Leelamma.
The trainers, Ms.Milli and Ms.Sarathi took over the session immediately after the prayer moment and started to impart the knowledge of making a cushion. The women parted with the desire of coming back the next day to learn the next step of “cushion making”.
We thank NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) for supporting our training programme.
