Women Empowerment Program 2006–07

Silken weave

Women of the Bodo tribe are known for their aesthetic sensibility and their skill with weaving. Sensing an opportunity to preserve the community’s crafts traditions and simultaneously develop another livelihood option, NERSWN implemented a cluster development project on Indi and Muga sericulture. Women were trained in rearing cocoons, reeling yarn, and weaving beautiful designs and also organized into self-help groups (SHGs) and encouraged to cultivate a habit of saving.
