The Center, opened on 12th December, 2004, is run by our Society at Dumurdaha, in a rural area of Hooghly District with the help and guidance of Hooghly Institute of Technology, Govt. of West Bengal and the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India. This vocational training and rehabilitation center had the following units - Manipur Tant manufacturing, Soft toy making, Computer training center, Beautician course training centre and course of Jute diversified products (in collaboration with National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development or NABARD). On successful completion of the course these rural women were able to find fair means of livelihood. Some of the Products made by the trainees were exhibited in stalls sponsored by NABARD at Dilli Hatt, New Delhi and Saras Mela at Salt Lake.Currently SFWOC is running a vocational training centre under same banner at Kestopur, adjacent V.I.P, Kolkata.
Omkar Institute For Mentally Challenged
This Institute was established by the Society in the year 2001 at Udaynaryanpur - a remote village in Howrah. About 79 mentally challenged children received specialized education and training by seven qualified and experienced teachers/ trainers. These children were also offered free Mid-day meal, transportation and two sets of new garments every year. Our organization is currently facing lot of difficulties to run this institute, due to financial obstacles. Our organization has about 10 kattah’s (702.73 Sqm.) of registered land in the area but due to lack of financial resources, infrastructural development is not being possible. However we are still hopeful and planning to operate from the same location with a full fledged school and an integrated vocational training center for which we are seeking financial support from likeminded benevolent organizations / persons.
Medical camps for differently able persons
Knowledge on this issue is very much restricted & therefore holding of special medical camps for Identification, certifications and Registration for distribution of Aids & Appliances to person with disabilities is of paramount Importance to our society and therefore our society has given top most priority to this task. Numbers of such camps have been held in collaboration with state commissioner for the person with Disabilities, West Bengal, NIOH Govt. of India and other connected agencies from time to time
