Since its inauguration last year in the month of October, library at Deepalaya Sanjay Colony learning center has gained momentum. However, till now it has been used by the students studying in the center. We have a trained librarian and volunteers who can eventually evolve the library into a community library under the guidance of Mridula Koshy.
With this aim in mind, Ms. Pushpa Khurana, librarian alongwith Ms. Mridula Koshy, Ms. Upali and a few teachers and volunteers from Sanjay Colony conducted an awareness generation drive in and around Sanjay Colony. The students too took the initiative and reached out to the community in different groups.
Two workshops for training of SHG members were conducted on 17th June & 18, June, 2016 at Pahal Kathayari, Uttrakhand. Mr. Kailash and Mr. Dilip Kumar Gupta, social workers posted at Uttrakhand conducted the workshop for members of 7 newly formed Self Help groups (SHGs). Around 46 women participated in the workshops. They were apprised about the concept of Self Help Groups and how it helps in transforming women into entrepreneurs by channelizing the collective resources of the group.
