North Eastern Council (NEC) secretary and chairman of North East Rural Livelihood Project (NERLP), Ram Muivah, on Saturday urged the Self Help Groups (SHGs) of Peren district not to be discouraged, but to work harder and take up various kinds of projects in a larger way as NERLP will be continued by merging with North Eastern Region Community Resource Management Project (NERCORMP). 

He made this announcement while inaugurating the Scientific Pig Slaughter House, the second in the North East of Peren Pig Producer Company Limited supported by NERLP, ministry of DoNER and World Bank at Jalukie town. 

NERLP, a World Bank aided project, is to enhance livelihood opportunities in North Eastern states by creating sustainable community institutions around women SHGs, youth groups of men and women and community development groups etc. The project is being implemented under the overall governance of DoNER ministry in two districts each in Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura and Sikkim. In Nagaland, the project is implemented in Tuensang and Peren and the project was supposed to end in September this year. 

However, the secretary said that the project would be continued in a bigger way after merging with NERCORMP and would be covering all the districts in the state till such time World Bank continues to sponsor. 

He also lauded the women SHGs for their good work and said that it was through their hard work and dedication that NERLP implementation was successful. Muivah further reminded the women SHGs and the gathering that Jalukie will become the “economic basket of Nagaland” as it has favourable climatic condition suited for all types of vegetation. He, therefore, asked the women SHGs to consider themselves as stakeholders and continued with their good works. 

Adviser Rural Development, Dr. Neikiesalie (Nicky) Kire, the special guest, in his speech said it was a proud moment for the district and thanked the SHGs from all over the districts from carrying out good work. He also reminded the SHGs to share their success stories to other districts and said “we should be able to feed the people and start reaching to them so that it can boost our economy”. Kire also encouraged the SHGs to go for large scale rearing of pigs so they could meet the demand in the state instead of importing from other states. 

Chief operating officer, Paul Lokho highlighted about NERLP project. The success story of NERLP Peren was shared by district project manager NERLP Peren, Ruuvilie Kotsu. 

Earlier, on his arrival the special guest inaugurated the Scientific Pig Slaughter house. The state-of-art slaughter was constructed at the cost of Rs.1.21 crore.
