Our #ProjectBariga project in 2018 was a success, we had a total of 68 applicants. Out of the 68 women, the Jaiyeroof Team selected 48 women who met our requirements for the program. At the conclusion of the 3 days, each participant was awarded a certificate of completion. Each instructor selected two students to participate in an extended 3 month vocational training course to further their knowledge in their selected trade.
