With a view to em­power and im­part skill to the lo­cal women of the re­mote vil­lages in Ra­jouri dis­trict, the Army has es­tab­lished Women Em­pow­er­ment Node at Hubi. The Node will im­part train­ing to lo­cal women and there­after pro­vide means for self em­ploy­ment as part of Women Em­pow­er­ment ini­tia­tive by Army. The node is presently con­duct­ing a tai­lor­ing course for women from 10 Jan 2019 on­wards. As part of the es­tab­lish­ment, Sewing Ma­chines, clothes and other ba­sic items for tai­lor­ing which will fa­cil­i­tate in train­ing of the lo­cal women are be­ing pro­vided. In all, 20 women from ad­join­ing ar­eas are un­der­go­ing train­ing at this Node and ac­quir­ing req­ui­site skill for earn­ing a de­cent liveli­hood. The Women Em­pow­er­ment Node has proved to be a path-breaker and a step­ping stone to­wards achiev­ing the goal of self re­liance of women folk of the far-flung and re­mote re­gions.

The women have ap­pre­ci­ated the Army's ef­fort in set­ting up of the Node and im­part­ing vo­ca­tional skill train­ing, thereby in the true sense em­pow­er­ing them by mak­ing them self re­liant. The vi­sion­ary project of the Army will sig­nif­i­cantly con­trib­uted to­wards the over­all na­tional aim of Women Em­pow­er­ment and fi­nan­cial up­lift­ment of these re­mote re­gions of the coun­try.
