Entrepreneurship development & Training Programs to Craftsperson/ NGO’s/ Government Officials /Other Beneficiary Groups was an integral part of the project objective right from commencement of the project. Once the designs’ for the range of furniture for rural school and Primary Health Centre were developed, these were fabricated into full scale prototypes.
A three pronged approach was planned to announce the complete range of new furniture developed under the project. This included:

• Invitation to beneficiary groups including decision making authorities and officials from Government departments including Primary Education, Rural Development and Primary Education.
• Invitation to the media and press to write an article about the outcome of this project and about the design work undertaken at the Department of Design, IIT Guwahati.
A permanent display of the furniture range developed under this project is put up permanently in the department of Design to facilitate dissemination of the same to different craft communities. Crafts persons from different location are informed to visit the department of design for getting an exposure to the new range of cane and bamboo furniture / product developed in this project.
