Ahmedabad: The National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) has conducted a five-day training workshop for 12 women members of dairy cooperative of Afghanistan at Anand near here, a senior official said today.
“In pursuit of a sustainable dairy development agenda and recognizing the need to boost livelihoods of small holder dairy farmers, NDDB organized a five-day orientation programme for the women dairy cooperative members from the provinces of Kabul, Logar and Parwan of Afghanistan during December 7-11, 2015 at NDDB, Anand,” NDDB Chairman T Nanda Kumar said.
This programme is a sequel to the NDDB collaborative regional meeting held at Anand in March, 2015, where experts and policy makers from Asia and the Pacific met to discuss and adopt a strategic framework for sustainable dairy development in Asia, an NDDB release said.
“Dairying provides food, family nutrition and incomes to women. Engagement of women needs to be viewed as a tool for socio-economic empowerment,” Kumar said.
