In a concerted effort to enhance the well-being of communities and promote self-sustainability, a one-day training program was meticulously organized by the Ripples of Change Foundation (ROCF), facilitated by MASHREQ Global Services. This initiative aimed to equip selected Self-Help Group (SHG) members, primarily health workers, from Beeravara and Kallipalya Village of Magadi Taluk in Ramangara District, and Channadevi Agrahara Village of Doddballapura Taluk in Bengaluru Rural District.

Objective of the Training Program:
The primary goal of the training program was to raise awareness about herbal medicines and guide participants in the preparation of Neeragundi Tailam, a herbal pain relief oil. The initiative sought to empower participants to create the oil independently, transforming the activity into both a source of income generation and a valuable local service.

The training program, held on Monday, October 20, 2023, at the Arasinakunte Training Hall, featured a distinguished lineup of guests, contributing to a rich and informative session.

Kantalakshmi, a dedicated Panchayat Member and Local Self-Help Group (SHG) Member, and Smt. Shusheela N Kamat, the esteemed President of the BHOOMI Sustainable Development Society. The event drew a diverse group of participants, including 2 male attendees, 10 female participants, and 4 members from BHOOMI, reflecting a collaborative effort to foster community engagement and knowledge sharing. The Arasinakunte Training Hall provided an ideal setting for an interactive and informative session, highlighting the importance of such initiatives in promoting health and sustainable development.

The program commenced with a prayer led by Mrs. Anurudha, the resource person. Mrs. Geethrani T.K. from the BHOOMI Team extended a warm welcome to the guests, volunteers, and SHG members.
