MaolKeki Foundation (MKF), a pioneering organisation, on Friday announced a new programme called ‘Livelihoods Development Programme’ aimed at securing funding to support Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at various relief camps.
The programme is launched in memory of one late Laishram Dineshchandra Singh, who was the former Nodal Officer of the Monitoring Team of the Relief Camp at Meitei Langol Leima Khullen Leikai, Imphal West, stated a release.
The foundation conducted a pilot experiment by supporting a few of the resident IDPs to make handloom and handicraft products at the said relief camp, it stated.
MKF has been focusing on helping the IDPs following the outbreak of widespread violence in the state, it said, adding that it has supported around 782 children in 12 relief camps located in five districts till date. Essential supplies including winter clothes have been procured for distribution to the IDPs in the coming weeks, it mentioned.
MKF has raised funds to select 50 individuals or more depending on funding from various relief camps and provide them with basic training on entrepreneurship and supply materials to make handloom and handicraft products to facilitate them in growing their income, it stated. It further invited applications from candidates for a Marketing & Sales Project Manager and informed those interested to write to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ for further details.
