Team Metamorphosis in collaboration with the Wokha district administration under the Bedi Bachaao Bedi Padhao scheme launched the detergent washing powder ‘Tsunglup’, an initiative of the team for women empowerment targeting the marginalized section on June 27. 

A press release from Team Metamorphosis advisor in chief, Thungdemo Kyong stated that the detergent powder is being made by the members of the team along with women SHGs based in and around Wokha town. Team Metamorphosis learned the art from KEHINYE; a very prominent women SHG from Tseminyu town. 

Since the last three years, the team has been in activities for the upliftment of the most marginalized and lesser privileged women and youth through skill development training like detergent making, paper bags making, electrification, live sound system management, micro financing etc. All these activities have been aimed at ‘Self Reliance’. 

The team also distributed sanitary pads free of cost to the marginalized women for which the team Metamorphosis was collaborated by the Serendip Guardians in collaboration with the humans of Nagaland on the campaign tackling period poverty during Covid-19. This campaign is aimed at distributing free sanitary pads to 7000 menstruators for three months.

Gracing the function at the Team Metamorphosis office, EAC Wokha sardar, Imtijungla Longkumer expressed her joy for the happenings, particularly, that the local people are actively participating in the production of local materials for self reliance. She also cited an example about how popular the little Shillong Saboon (Shillong soap) has become and which has been produced by the locals of the state. Nine students of NEISSR Dimapur, who have been doing their internship with the Team Metamorphosis also attended the programme and learned making the detergent powder. They were also assigned to assist the team in locating the beneficiaries for the sanitary pads.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
