LOHARDAGA: A 10-day teacher training programme on vocational courses for women hailing from 39 cluster centre government schools concluded at the Sadar Block Resource Centre on Tuesday.
It was a Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan programme under National Programme for Education of Girls at Elementary Level, which provides job-oriented training to girls from Class VI to VIII to enable them to be self-reliant in future.

The teachers trained in artificial jewellery making, mushroom production, sewing using machine and bicycle repairing. They will use their skills to teach primary and middle school girls of the clusters. "Girls of Classes VI to VIII are trained three days a week on Saturdays, Sundays and any other holiday," informed Sadar Block Education Extension officer Salay Soren.
Teachers who trained at the programme are hopeful of the results it will reap. "Artificial jewellery making is an important course as it attracts good income because of the demand of the products. I have trained several girls under the Kujra cluster schools on fancy jute work, making agarbatti, surf, handicraft and knitting," Suman Devi, one of the trainees, proudly proclaimed.
