Small scale handicraft project for soft skill development:
Children from different vulnerable situation who are living in the shelter home of the organization are given training to make various small handicraft products that is enhancing their skills and increasing confidence within a child as well. When a child learns to make even a small product then s/he starts to believe it will help to find some sort of stability in their lives, also they gain some self- respect. The older the child grows new skills are gradually introduced to them. These are products like postcard, wrist band, decoration with pearl in a small thing etc. Many of their products are then sold from shelter home to the visitors and taken to our well-wishers. This initiative is continued uninterruptedly from the year of 2011-2015.And in 2016 this initiative is introduced through the underprivileged women in the EKMATTRA-Dutch-Bangla Bank area in Haluaghat, Mymensingh. They are now enjoying their life by earning from making craft item.
