Punjab Agricultural University's (PAU) College of Home Science (COHS) has decided to come up with a model resource centre with an aim of fostering employment and entrepreneurship among the women of the region.

The model resource centre would function with the objective of spreading awareness regarding the vitality of home science education and would provide practical knowledge in the fields of human development, family resource management, apparel and textile design, food and nutrition and extension management.

Brainchild of COHS dean Jatinder Kishtwaria, who is the mastermind behind the project, said the centre would inculcate women with the knowledge and skills that would help them in becoming entrepreneurs.

"All the departments of COHS are constantly coming up with new ideas on different services that can be offered at the centre. To popularise the initiative, several NGO's, self-help farmers groups, village panchayats and social activists will also be involved", Kishtwaria said adding that the resource centre would also double up as a training centre where different departments of the college would offer training to the students.

The dean also hoped to get more research projects for college's MSc and PhD students so as create more employment opportunities for them along with improving the standard of research projects.
