Empowerment of rural women folk

Skills training for making cowdung diyas was given to women of some self help groups in Keshiyari block so that they could generate additional income for the family. Within a short span of 1 month the village women prepared more than 4000 deepaks made of cow dung which were readily and happily bought by the city dwellers to celebrate their Dipawali. Next year we wish to scale it up to 50,000 diyas and add some more gomay items.
