Underprivileged Tribal Children’s Home, a home for 40 orphans from Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur including Nagaland got a new facelift with the inauguration of vocational training centre at its premises at Padumpukhuri here on Wednesday.
The new training centre was inaugurated by member general council NIEPMD, central ministry of social justice and empowerment, government of India and former minister, Thomas Ngullie.
The former minister after the inauguration said it was a big day for the children and assured he would be visiting the centre before Christmas with some assistance and also take up issues relating to their welfare.
According to director Northeast, Underprivileged Tribal Children’s Home, Rev. Kaifa Ezung, the home was established in 2003 under the support from Asia Evangelist Fellowship, an international organization with its headquarter in Australia.
The new vocational training centre would impart tailoring, knitting and weaving to the children so can learn to survive on their own when they leave the Home.
Apart from providing free shelter and education, the children at the Home are taught “To Live” by ways of sending them to various places to learn some works during holidays. The Home not only provides shelter but education up to 18 years. At present, it provides shelter to 23 boys and 17 girls.
