Computer training programme for tribal youth
Jamshedpur, Jul 23 (UNI) Jharkhand government's secretary of Department of Art, Culture, Sports and Youth Affairs N.N.Sinha today inaugurated ''Computer Training Programme for Educated Tribal Youth''at Kalamandir premises of The Celluloid Chapter Art Foundation here.
Inaugurating the training programme, Mr Sinha lauded the role of the foundation and urged the non-governmental organisations to emulate the feat of the organisation to create job opportunity for the educated tribal youth of the state.
Foundation secretary Amitava Ghosh said the programme of computer training was a part and parcel of the organisation's endeavour over the last nine years. He said it would create alternative and sustainable source of income generation outside the agrarian sector for the educated tribal youth of the state. It would also empower the tribal youth and create ''equal opportunity'' for them, Mr Ghosh observed.
A bi-monthly bulletin ''Mander'', a statement of the foundation's achievments over nearly a decade and also its future plans, was released by Mr Sinha.
The function was also marked by releasing of a video album ''Jhumurer Tale Tale'', an amalgamation of the Jharkhand folk songs by the folk aritists of the state.
