Empowering rural women to become self-reliant, the Rural Agricultural Work Experience (RAWE) students of the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) hosted a training programme on the “Preparation of Bakery Products” for the Self-help Group (SHG) women of the Nurpur Bet village. The purpose of the training was to share information on various entrepreneurial training programmes run by the Skill Development Centre of PAU.

During the training camp, Mrs Kuldeep Kaur, Demonstrator, Skill Development Centre, imparted practical training in the making of the recipes of various bakery products such as cake, biscuits, muffins, etc.

Dr Kuldeep Singh, Professor and Head, Department of Extension Education, PAU, educated the women about self-employment opportunities in agriculture and allied fields by citing an example of Saras Mela at PAU, Ludhiana, where rural artisans and entrepreneurs have made substantial economic progress through the sale of their handmade products.

Dr Devinder Tiwari, while appreciating the efforts of Mrs Kuldeep Kaur, informed about her key role behind successful self-employed entrepreneurs, who were earning a handsome amount of money by making traditional handicrafts like phulkarees, daries, pakhies etc.

Dr Lavleesh Garg, Extension Scientist, shed light on Udaan and Uddam schemes run by the Centre.

Later, village Sarpanch Sukhbir Kaur, who is running more than five SHGs in the village, inspired her group ladies to reap maximum benefit out of the programmes run by the PAU. She also appreciated the RAWE students for their relentless efforts for the wellbeing of the farming community of the village.
