DC visits sanitary unit at Khonsa

KHONSA, Jun 1: Deputy Commissioner cum Chairman of NERCORMP-Tirap P N Thungon accompanied by the DDSE paid an unannounced visit to the sanitary unit at Khonsa and enquired about the raw materials, per day production, machineries, the supply chain and how it can collaborate with Education department for distribution of sanitary napkins to girl students.

Besides interacting with the NERCORMP official and women SHGs, the DC inspected the natural raw materials at the unit. A short demonstration was shown how it’s made. Several questions were raised on difference between other brands and the locally produced one and how it’s cost effective, environmental friendly and how it leads to women empowerment. The SHGs expressed few needs that are required for smooth functioning of the unit like support to lay carpets to resist dust since the floor is not properly cemented, a glass door in the front room, a low-cost toilet nearby, etc.

The DC suggesting to keep the surrounding clean by burning the waste materials appreciated the work taken up by the SHGs and vowed to lend support to them at time of need. (DIPRO)
