SJI, in partnership with the Jigme Namgyel Engineering College’s (JNEC) Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC), launched a week-long shoe-repairing course for five local youths to meet the need for shoe-repairing services in Samdrup Jongkhar in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We are optimistic that once they enter the market to open shoe repair shops, the relevant authorities and agencies will extend their support.
We are grateful to Mr. Pema Wangchuk པདྨ དབང་ཕྱུག who is a JNEC faculty member, JNEC EDC focal person, and also the recipient of the Australia Awards – Partnership Recovery – Alumni Support Grant, for supporting this programme.
