Education fair for weavers’ children

To guide them on choosing their higher educational courses

The Crafts Council of India (CCI) organises the first ever ‘Education Fair’ at Bharathiyar Higher Secondary School, Veeravanallur, on January 10 and 11 for the benefit of 11th and 12th standard students from weavers’ families.

A statement said CCI’s ‘Educate to Sustain’ programme was conducted at Veeravanallur for the last three years and is aimed at children of the weavers.

While weavers’ children go to school, they, who no longer want to carry on the tradition of weaving, have little exposure to their options in the field of higher education. So, educationists would be talking to them on making choices during the fair.

Leading institutions

Educational institutions such as Indian Institute of Handloom Technology, Salem, Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Sathyamangalam, Manonmanian Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli, Sri Paramakalyani Centre of Excellence in Environmental Sciences, Alwarkurichi, National Institute of Fashion Technology, Tirupur, Exporters’ Association College of Knitwear Fashion, Tirupur, Sardar Patel Institute of Textiles and Management, Coimbatore, will participate in the expo.

Educationists Padma Srinath and Akhila Rajeshwar, story teller Muthu Annamalai, management advisor Manick Rajendran will participate in the expo to guide the students on choosing their career.

Aspiring students may visit the expo and participate in the career guidance programmes, the statement said.

The CCI is a voluntary non-profit organisation, working for the welfare of artisans and development of handicrafts.

It is the apex body with a network of 10 State Councils and is affiliated to the World Crafts Council.
