Dibrugarh: Resident Chief Executive, OIL, Pranjit Deka inaugurated Project Parijat, a CSR project of Oil India Limited in association with OIL Hospital, towards providing sustainable livelihood to the differently-abled while enhancing their skills and mental well-being.
The project is implemented by the Vocational Training Unit of Mrinaljyoti Rehabilitation Centre (MRC), Duliajan, Assam. The event was also graced by D K Bhuyan, GM (PA), OIL, D K Talukdar, General Manager (MS-Physiotherapy), A Borpujari, Director, MRC, OIL officials, members of Zaloni Ladies Club and students of MRC and their parents.
As part of the project under vocational education, the differently-abled students of MRC at Duliajan will be trained to produce garments for the newborn babies that will be gifted by OIL Hospital to all babies born there. The garments will be tailored by the students in the age group of 15-18 years who are no more part of any formal education system but have stayed with MRC. The project will provide meaningful and sustainable livelihood opportunities to the students and help them earn income thereby enabling them towards socio-economic empowerment.
Project Parijat aims to assimilate the differently-abled students with the mainstream society while ensuring their continuous engagement in productive activities, which is one of the essentials for positive mental health.
