To improve the living conditions of the weavers who lost their livelihood due to the rise of modern fashion and varied market demands, CybageAsha, in collaboration with Rural Development and Research Center (RDRC) conducted a two-month-long handloom training program for 25 weavers of Dholka taluka. The program aimed at training the weavers and help them come back to the market.
After the completion of the program, CybageAsha held a ceremony to felicitate the recipients of the program. The ceremony was held in Jalalpur village, Dholka Taluka.
Geeta Lalwani- Head-Operations, Cybage CSR Gandhinagar, handed over the stipend (cheques) and certificates to the beneficiaries. CybageAsha distributed certificates and Rs.2000 stipend for the two-month training program to the beneficiaries. Additionally, the qualified beneficiaries are now registered with the Government's Handloom Department for work associated possibilities. The function was presided over by dignitaries from the village panchayat, member of the taluka panchayat, and officers from the government handloom department. Implementation partner, RDRC, will provide work and handloom machines at a subsidized rate.
