Huner training is empowering women in Bihar: Dr Surendra Kumar
Bihar Board of Open Schooling and Examination (BBOSE), Patna is doing a praiseworthy job by holding various training courses for women in the state. As a part of these courses, women are trained in computers and other skills like knitting, weaving, and child and maternity care.

ON THURSDAY last, hundreds of women hailing from different parts of the state took part in the Hunar-II training course, launched by Nitish Kumar-led government. Majority of the participants were married women. Their husbands and siblings were seen helping them to take care of their children.

Expert women trainers spoke about different topics of the course in a very simple style to the participants. Tailoring was found to be the most favorite subject among participants.

“There was a very good response from students and neighboring states and countries like Bangladesh, Nepal etc. Maximum students hail from Purnia district,” informed Dr Surendra Kumar, academic director of BBOSE, Patna.

Hunar Training Course is a part of a Bihar government’s Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan programme. It’s a free course, especially for the SC, ST and minority community. “It is educationally and economically empowering the girls and women of Bihar. It is also encouraging them for self employment,” added Dr Kumar.

“This is the second phase of the programme and we have trained about 16,000 girls in Bihar till now. The Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar inaugurated the course in 2008 at Delhi and Patna. A trained teacher gets Rs. 78 honorarium for one class or monthly salary Rs 2,500 as fixed by the school officials. All participants were selected by the different district education centers of Bihar. These trained women would be employed in government schools,” Rajesh Mohan, Asst. Director Academic, BBOSE told this citizen journalist .
