OPJCC: Remarkable achievements for lady trainees

Sixty-six mason trainees at OPJCC’s Aparajita programme received stipends worth seven-lakh rupees from the Raigarh District Labour Department. Aparajita is a signature programme focussed on training women in the construction trades. The initiative is run by OPJCC in partnership with the Raigarh District Labour Department. The Assistant Labour Commissioner and his team handed out the training stipends averaging Rs 8500 per trainee. Aparajita’s mobile programmes enable rural women to access skill training and include village-based classes and advanced practical lessons at real construction sites in Punjipathra. Connecting women to various government schemes is an integral part of the programme.
