TANGLA: The Public Health Department of Udalguri has taken up a unique initiative to empower the women of the region by conducting a training programme on Women Mason under Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) . The programme was initiated with the help of two Self Help Groups viz. Jeuti SHG and Rupali SHG whose group heads had undergone the training on Women Mason at Barpeta District in the month of May last. After discussing the matter with the women of Santipur VCDC in Udalguri District, a group of 10 women came forward to undergo the training programme on the programme. The Public Health Engineering Department conducted a two-day long training programme at PHC sub-centre in Santipur Village nearby Indo-Bhutan area of Udalguri district on June 20 and 21 last. The  programme was chaired by Executive Engineer(PHE), Bhupen Saikia; District Nodal Officer(SBM-G), Nameshwar Tayung;  Technical Officers, Ramiz Raja Choudhury and Injamamul Islam. It is pertinent here to mention that Udalguri  is the second District to impart Women Mason training in Assam after Barpeta.
