Indian Army in collaboration with an NGO opened a bakery in Kalakote Village, Rajouri district. The main purpose of opening it is to provide employment to women.
The 63 Rashtriya Rifles came up with this idea and collaborated with Aseem NGO to help create employment for women of remote and under-developed area to improve their standard of life.
The women were trained for 21 days and were provided practical knowledge about bakery operation and also bakery techniques to make cookies, cakes and other items.
This initiative is the effort of Indian Army towards women empowerment, to make them self-reliable.
