Skill development training for HIV/AIDS women

 Punarbal Plus has organised a range of Skill Development Training for infected women.

Felt Making workshop

In 2010 we arranged a 10 day felt making training workshops where 12 positive women participated. The women came together from different organisations and were facing economic difficulties after being disowned by their families following the death of their husbands.

The Training session invovled making 15 different types of felt items such as slippers, key rings, hand bags and purses. The items were later displayed and sold at the World AIDS Day event in Kathmandu. Seeing the enthusiasm from the women, Punarbal Plus would like to market their products as the women are in dire need of economic support.

Candle Making

Candle making training in 2009 was a one day program faciliatated by Punarbal Plus and organised by the Vocational and Skill Development Training Centre.
