Good response to tailoring course for women

By Our Special Correspondent

TIRUCHI, MARCH 19 . The six-month long tailoring course conducted for the benefit of women attending the continuing education programme (Arivoli) has evoked a good response.

About 370 women, all belonging to economically weaker sections, were undergoing the training in 15 centres functioning in the district — one in the corporation limit and the rest 14 in panchayat union limits.

According to official sources, of the 519 continuing education centres functioning in the city and rural areas, 15 were selected to offer tailoring courses and the whole programme was conducted by the People's Educational Institute run by the Central Government.

About 20 women were selected for the tailoring course organised by the continuing education centre at Vaaladi in Lalgudi Panchayat union, of which three discontinued. The rest successfully completed the programme. The Collector, K. Manivasan, gave away the course completion certificates at a brief function held yesterday.

The Director, People's Educational Institute, P. Santhalingam, the District Programme Coordinator, Continuing Education Programme, R. Ilangovan and the Lalgudi block programme coordinator, R. Pannerselvam, were present on the occasion.

The training course in the other 14 centres was progressing in a satisfactory manner, sources said and added that similar programmes would be introduced in other centres once funds were received from the Centre.

Over 12,000 illiterate men and women were attending the literacy classes conducted by the 519 continuing education centres in the district, the sources added.
