Nowshera Brigade- J&K

“We are thankful to URI for conducting a workshop on Gender Issues in Nowshera Tehsil of Rajouri District in Jammu & Kashmir. Subhi and her team pioneered the workshop where in they trained the teachers from Government schools of border villages along the LoC. Despite our initial apprehensions, the initiative was extremely well received by the participants and has had a lasting impact towards better understanding of gender related issues. Kudos to the team for travelling all the way into conflict stricken area, addressing a very relevant topic which plagues the society and bringing about a perceptible difference. Our endeavour to conduct a workshop in border villages on this extremely sensitive but pertinent subject did not find any takers until URI accepted the challenge and traveled to the areas along the LoC and conducted the event in the most professional manner. The team displayed outstanding commitment and ingenuity in conduct of the workshop. They untiringly addressed numerous queries of the participants who had been exposed to the subject for the first time. The participants expressed extreme gratitude and lauded the role being played by URI in addressing social causes. We would be delighted to continue our association and wish URI the very best in all their future endeavours. The laudable initiatives undertaken by your teams is sure to bring in the much needed changes in our society and take the nation towards a better tomorrow.”
