Educating Communities in Bidadi
In an initiative to support our SHG (Self Help Group) members in generating more income through various business ventures, HCCB organized EDP (Entrepreneurship Development Program) training in Bidadi recently. HCCB joined hands with CEDOK (Centre for Entrepreneurship Development of Karnataka) for 30 SHG members from Jogardoddi, Byravanadoddi, Abbanakuppe and Medanahalli.
During the session, the participants were given insights on the skills required to become an entrepreneur and were also informed about schemes available in various departments to start their businesses. HCCB has supported SHGs in various initiatives such as Papad Making, Mushroom Cultivation, and Candle Packing.
To drive awareness among the school children in the area of hygiene, HCCB also organized WaSH, a program to inculcate the habit of having clean and hygienic hands in the Abbanakuppe colony primary school for both Primary and High School. Leading the session, Dr Savitha educated the students on hand and oral hygiene, explaining the importance of maintaining hygiene and why it is essential. Post the session, an oral check was conducted for 70 children.
