State’s first batch of World Vision India (WVI) sponsored Handicrafts Training 2010 concluded Monday at a valedictory function held at Savino Craft Centre (SCC) Dimapur.
Speaking at the function as chief guest, Nagaland Handloom & Handicrafts Development corporation (NHHDC) managing director, Hokiye Yepthomi lauded the trainees on their completion of the vocational programme. He stated that the occasion acted as a capacity building for their future, and urged them to draw inspiration from their motivational instructors.
Pointing out that entrepreneurship was divided into individual and group (SHGs) categories, the chief guest said whichever the trainees chose, they needed to have vision and consistency in their work. Assuring trainees that department would extend support and help if they produced, Yepthomi further encouraged them to participate at various district and state level exhibitions.
Addressing the trainees, Craft Council of Nagaland (CCN) president and SCC proprietor Neikhozoto Savino highlighted the benefits and scope of handicrafts in the state. He also encouraged the trainees to take part in craft bazaars and exhibitions at district/state/northeast/national levels, and particularly at the Hornbill festival of the state.
Further, he apprised participants on the prospect of smaller products such as gift items which he said, were more convenient for transportation. He also urged trainees to approach SCC or CCN for guidance at anytime for exposure activities.
Meanwhile, WVI Nagaland unit programme officer N. R. Kithan gave a brief outline of World Vision India and its community development programs in the state. He stated that the organization, working on youth management, would be imparting training on various programs for sustenance of livelihood among the youth. Stating that the state had the resources to make its own handicraft industry, he further called upon the trainees to develop the right attitude and outlook as they ventured into business and entrepreneurship.
A total of 15 trainees from Mon district were trained at SCC Dimapur during the three-month long programme which was conducted under the aegis of youth empowerment & entrepreneurship development in collaboration with Mon area development programme, WVI. The trainees were awarded with a certificate, identity card and a tool kit each.
