I am Tenzing gyatso Bhutia, President of Khechoperi Organic Growers Cooperative Society Limited. The 5 Days training programme was very useful in terms of our capacity building. I personally and on behalf of every FPO, would like to extend our sincere thanks to SFAC, NIRD and other stakeholders for organising such a comprehensive training programme for FPOs in Sikkim. We are delighted that we have learned a lot in this training programme. Earlier, we were walking in dark but this training has been like a light from a candle we know now what our target is and what all we have to so before moving forward. Being a farmer we had not gone through such intensive training programme, the kind of field exposure we got was quite interesting and added a knowledge which we can practice after returning back from here. The topics covered in this training programme were very much relevant like - FIG Awareness, Panchasutra, Organic Farming and its Legal Boundaries, Cooperative Framework, Business Plan, Value Chain etc.
