The training program was organized by JKEDI’s Centre for Women Entrepreneurship (CENWENT) and coincided with the ongoing celebrations of International Women’s Day.
The EDP was attended by female candidates from across the Jammu district and they will undergo a training program with a focus on self-development, basic business skills, business and marketing plan formulation, account management, sector-specific technical inputs, and will be appraised of all the formalities involved in setting up an enterprise.
The aim of the program was to help candidates to be self-reliant and facilitate capacity building. Director JKEDI congratulated the women present at the program and said that there is a lot to celebrate about women’s achievements.
He added that there is much more to do in that direction and we need to embrace equality and build a better world for women. The scheme is a special initiative of Mission Youth J&K, aimed at providing financial assistance to young women for setting up gainful self-employment ventures suited to their skills, aptitude, and local conditions.
It will empower and encourage women to set up income-generating units through manufacturing, services, or trading activities. Upon successful completion of the training program, these registered female candidates will receive assistance in establishing or expanding their business ventures.
