Women trainees awarded

Chitral  -Certificates and swing machines were distributed among 20 successful women graduates of a cutting and stitching course here in Murdan village on Sunday. ACO Miftahuddin was chief guest while the ceremony was presided over by M I Khan Sarhadi, chairman district Zakat and ushr committee Chitral.


 Renowned social figure of Garam Chashma Islamuddin and Sultan Mehmood, RPM Hashoo Foundation were also present on the occasion. The training was organized with financial assistance of the district Zakat committee. The Committee also provided one machine to each successful trainee to enable the women to start up their own business and generate honorable income for themselves.


Speaking on the occasion Chief Guest appreciated the efforts of the district Zakat Committee for financing the skill development activities in the far flung areas of the district and providing the required resources to support the poor women to start their own business. He also urged the successful graduates to make use of the skills and the resources to generate income and stand on their own feet. He also assured the women group that the district government will also extend all out support to help them. Other speakers also emphasized that the training should not prove to be training for the sake of training rather the women should practically use the skills for the purpose of income generation and economic independence.

It is worth mentioning here that the training was supervised by a young uneducated but highly skillful lady Sifat Gul who has so far trained 900 women in different skills across the district. Her students include Masters and Bachelor degree holders who presented her with a garland as a sign of their respect for their uneducated but skillful and courageous teacher.  --S Mehmood, , Garam Chashma Chitral, 06 Dec 2010
