Khadi and Village Industry Commission (KVIC) launches a Leather Mission from Sirohi
On the occasion of World Tribal Day (WTD-2019), the Khadi and Village Industry Commission (KVIC) has launched a new programme ‘Leather Mission’ from the tribal-dominated village of Chandala in Sirohi district of Rajasthan. Under this new programme, KVIC will give Leather Kits to the leather artisans across the nation. It will not only increase their incomes manifold but will also inspire the traditional leather artisans who had migrated to other jobs from their traditional skill to adopt this vocation again. The KVIC has also distributed approx 50 leather kits and 350 Bee-Boxes with live bee colonies under the programmes like Leather Mission, Kumhar Sashaktikaran Mission and Honey Mission.
