The inauguration of our “Village Gold” bio-product shop took place on 6th February, 2016 in the presence of several dignitaries including Mr. Olaf Iversen (Consul General, Federal Republic of Germany, Kolkata), Mr. Suban Roy Chowdhury and Prof. Gautam Chakraborty (Bose Institute, Kolkata).
The trainees demonstrated how some of the bio-products are made.
The special attractions of the ‘Village Gold’ shop are bio-products like Muringa biscuits and powder; pickle, jam and jelly from papaya; chilly, mustard and mushrooms; and also village handicrafts like brooms and art items made from low cost materials.
We thank Bose Institute for all their support.
