 SHILLONG: The rural population should take advantage of the available natural resources to sustain their livelihood, said Meghalaya Khadi Village and Industries Board (MKVIB) CEO Marybell Roy.

Addressing the valedictory function of the training on handicraft at Tynnai-Mawkyrwat organised by the Association for Rural Development (ARD) on Thursday, Roy urged the local people to plant more bamboo trees and understand its value saying “bamboos have the capacity to sustain livelihood and improve the economic income of the people”.

“The people should not hesitate to showcase their items at the trade fairs and other exhibitions organised by the government from time to time as this is a platform for them to sell and display their materials”, added Roy.

It may be mentioned that at present, there are around 50 people who were imparted with the training by the ARD and in the next training, they will select over 200 people to be part of the training to fasten the work at the same time help to sell their finished products in markets.

The function was chaired by Vice Chairman of ARD, Commander Shangpliang in the presence of ARD chairman, Basan P Lyngdoh, Executive Secretary, S Lyngdoh besides others.
