Gangtok, 10 Jul:
When it comes to women entrepreneurs, Sikkim has been taking tall strides with women coming forward not just to help their businesses but also to help the women community towards being self sustaining and vibrant section of the Sikkimese population.
Keeping the mission of empowering women of the State in view, founder of Clarion Home Bakery, Gangtok, Sujata Gurung, has initiated a move to train local women in what they do best, baking.
“With capacity guiding comes empowerment and no skill is small or big,” states Sujata.
Hailing from the capital, she started her bakery venture in Siliguri, West Bengal and later went on to open a branch in Gangtok.
Her bakery workshop conducted in the capital includes training women from across the State in baking skills.
“This is our second workshop in Sikkim,” she says.
Today, she has successfully concluded her training programme for 27 women from the capital.
She has also conducted many such workshops in neighbouring West Bengal and is tied up with State Government sponsored projects.
“I would like to thank Ms Gurung for making us capable of baking as empowerment comes with skills,” said a housewife who has successfully completed her training.
Women from the State have been breaking all stereotypes and have not just started to contribute at their homes but also to society.
