Making of the Tailors

A six months long Tailoring training program for tribal girls --drop outs from primary schools-- commenced on 20 Feb 2007 at DDC, our training center, came to an end with the issue of Certificates, a cultural program and giving away of prizes on 14 Aug 2007. Of the thirty girls, 26 of them passed successfully and they will now join some tailors at their villages / towns for better experience or they will begin the trade by themselves. Mr. Mahadeb Dey, the Asst. General Manager, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development graced the occasion. In the picture you can see Ms. Lakhi Oraon, a poor tribal girl from Chanchol, Malda district, receiving a Tailoring Machine as first prize from R. Puthumai A. Nazarene, the Director and Mr. Mahadeb Dey.
