Skills Development Training On I.G.As

Skills development of SHG members will be conducted to enhance the productivity, quality, and profitability of the SHGs? production activities or service provision. The skills development training will be catered to each SHG based on the activity it selects. An example of skills development training would be one on handicraft production, which could be given to the SHG members of villages selected for ecotourism development by the EMC and other interested SHG members.

The training would take two weeks and would be provided to 50 members of SHGs. Five each from ten SHGs may be selected by the JFMCs, EDCs, and PSS?s. These participants in turn would train more inexperienced members of the SHGs upon their return. Groups of ten formed by type of craft or product may be instructed together.
