Dehradun, December 19

More than 650 women belonging to the minority community in Dehradun district have been given leadership training under the Nai Roshni programme initiated by the Rural Litigation and Entitlement Kendra (RLEK). These include 125 women from Teliwala in the Doiwala block and Jamanpur and Jamanpur Khera in the Sahaspur block. Another 125 women will be trained in Binovanagar, Chharba and Bullakiwala villages of the Vikasnagar block from December 21, said Chairperson of RLEK Padam Shri Avdhash Kaushal here today.

During the six-day training programme, women were not only imparted leadership skills but were also made aware of their rights as a woman and member of the minority community, financial dealings, social schemes, health and hygiene and other aspects important for becoming an informed resident and a leader. The training concluded here today.

The programme also had a session on “Investor Education and Awareness” conducted by Jubin Mehta, assistant general manager (AGM) of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The aim of the session was to spread basic financial awareness among people so that they could make sound financial decisions. He spoke about the illegal collective investment scheme running in society.

Vineet Tomar, Block Development Officer, interacted with women and listened to their grievances and experiences.

Ranjita, pramukh of the Sahaspur block, said, “These leadership training under the Nai Roshni scheme are helpful and as this area is big, more such training programmes are needed.”
