Vidatha centres train IDPs in life skills

The Science and Technology Ministry through its Vidatha Resource Centres scattered throughout the country has taken several measures to help the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in the North and the East provinces under the Program, Vadakkin Vasantham.

Technical equipment worth of Rs. 756,192 (Yoghurt incubators, bakery technology ovens, vegetable dehydrators and wood gas stoves) have been distributed in Mannar and Vavuniya districts to transfer technologies to the needy people.

Many training programs on Soil Cement Manufacturing Process of the National Engineering Research and Development Centre (NERD) have been held for IDPs to enable them to access technologies to build their own shelters with the low cost housing construction technology.

Similarly training programs for science and technology officers serving in Vidatha Resource Centres have been conducted on rice based food product technology, fruit and vegetable based food product technology, milk based food product technology and rice based noodles product technology, in these districts to transfer technologies for the needy people to uplift their livelihoods.

It is learnt that fresh milk is abundantly available in these areas with no appropriate value addition being given to the resources.

It is expected that transfer of technologies for this fresh milk would enhance the opportunity for the farmers to give value addition with wide spectrum of products.
