‘Forum for Women Empowerment' wing in the KBN College holds training camp

Savouring public attention that earned them lavish praise for their ingenuity, the 1,450-odd women have geared up to welcome the visitors to their stalls with broad grins. An exhibition and awarding of certificates to successful trainees is slated on Thursday.

The training camp, seventh in a row, hosted by the ‘Forum for Women Empowerment' wing in the KBN College transformed the campus into an artist's palette, as the women began learning the nuances of hand embroidery, beautician, tailoring, pot painting etc courses at the camp that began in last week of April.

After learning the nitty-gritty of different activities like sari work, maggam work, fabric painting, nib painting, fashion designing, beautician course, yoga, karate and basic knowledge of computer, the women seemed quite confident about their newly-acquired skills.

While few women feel training in MS Office would he helpful in securing a job, some preferred a course in ‘fashion designing’.

Flaunting the end product of hard work coupled with her unwavering faith in herself, Kumari says, “the training gave me an opportunity to understand inherent skills.” The college management created a common platform for not just the college girls but women in the vicinity to lay bare their innate skills, she adds.

Jyothi was one among many women who underwent training in tailoring at a camp conducted by the Kakaraparthi Bhava Narayana (KBN) College a couple of years ago. Then, she did dream of becoming a faculty member and training many more women like her.

“It's a different experience to stand here and share my experiences, and coach many women like me,” she says.

The organisers were happy that hundreds of women underwent training in various fields at the camp organised by them. They said they could impart training to more than 12,000 women during the last seven years.
