Tabitha Self Help Group, comprising of 10 members (housewives) on Monday launched home made organic soap, ranging from bathing soaps and washing soaps. The soaps are purely organic made of aloe vera, orange extract and other botanical items. The group was trained in the art of soap making, by resource persons from Haflong, under Eargon Project and initiative of Kohima Ao Baptist Church (KABA).
According to an official bulletin, the main objective of the Tabitha Self Help Group is to help the poor housewives by employing them in the trade of soap making, so as to uplift their economic status and to empower them.
President of Tabitha, Imtila Longkumer said it was a small beginning where products were sold to friends and well-wishers initially. She informed that products would be out in the market very soon.
In a simple yet impressive programme held at Agri Colony, Associate Pastor KABA Sentisashi said the urgent need of the society was hard work. While appreciating the initiatives taken up by Tabitha Self Help Group, he said it should serve as an encouragement to the youth of the present generation.
Urging Tabitha Self Help Group members to work hard, he encouraged them by saying “Every criticism must be taken as a stepping-stone to success”. Sentisashi Aier also pronounced the dedicatory prayer.
