About 30 members of the families that survived the Bhopal gas tragedy received certificates of completion of computer and sewing-embroidery training courses at the Swabhiman Kendra, a centre run by NGO Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan (BGPMUS), on Tuesday.

The centre is run through personal contributions without any government aid. During the last 17 years, the centre has trained more than 5,000 gas survivors and their dependents in sewing, embroidery, zari work, carry bag making and other related self-employment work apart from basic computer training to about 500 persons.

Convener of Swabhiman Kendra Abdul Jabbar said about 90% of the trained persons had found employment or was self-employed after the training.

On Tuesday, certificates were handed over to the latest batch of trainees by corporators Shahwar Mansuri, Rafiq Qureshi, superintendent of police Arvind Saxena, member of Supreme Court-appoint monitoring committee Purnendu Shukla and Akbar Khan of local Itwara Committee.
