Bosco Reach Out conducted four awareness programmes on the Scheme of Fund for Regeneration of Traditional Industries (SFURTI) project at Lengopara and Borobakra from 15 to 18 October 2019. A total of 244 participants attended the programme.
During the awareness programme the artisans were made aware of the SFURTI project by explaining to them the objective of the project, project provision (soft intervention, hard intervention and thematic intervention), roles and responsibility of the IIE Nodal Agency, EPCH, Technical Agency, BRO, Implementation Agency and the beneﬁciaries/artisans and the beneﬁt of the SFURTI project.
Thereby, the objective of the scheme was to bring economic development to themselves and their society. Under the project the artisans are organised into clusters to make them competitive and provide support for their long term sustainability, provide employment, enhance marketability of product by providing support for new product, design intervention, improved packaging and marketing infrastructure. Strengthening of the cluster governance systems with the active participation of the stakeholders are carried out, so that they are able to gauge the emerging challenges and opportunities and respond to them in a coherent manner.
