Empowering Communities through Circular Economy Training Oporajita Project Impact

In a world where sustainability is becoming increasingly crucial, initiatives like the Oporajita project spearheaded by TMSS are driving significant change. On November 18th, at the TMSS Rupnagar, Mirpur branch, a momentous ceremony unfolded – the distribution of certificates among successful trainees who underwent an 8-day training program on Circular Economy. This transformative program, held from September 12th to 20th at Sabah Bangladesh Bhavan in Pallabi, Mirpur, Dhaka, focused on empowering individuals with skills in repurposing unused cloth and jute into valuable products.

TMSS, a key implementing partner of the Oporajita project, witnessed 100 enthusiastic trainees participating in the comprehensive training. Notably, 91 individuals showcased exceptional dedication and proficiency, earning well- deserved certificates. Among the esteemed attendees at the certificate award ceremony was Samiha Yasin, the Program Focal and Assistant Director of Program- 1, accompanied by other esteemed members of the project.

The driving force behind this impactful endeavor, Intellicap’s Circular Apparel Innovation Factory (CAIF), stands committed to providing training and support to workers who have exited garment factories or related sectors. The core mission revolves around educating and inspiring these individuals about the principles of upcycling and the significance of embracing a circular economy mindset.

At the heart of the training lies the goal of reimagining unused materials such as cloth, paper, leather, and more, transforming them into viable resources through innovative reuse techniques. Beyond just skill-building, this initiative emphasizes the broader impact on our environment. Trainees not only gain insights into the untapped potential of discarded resources but also become ambassadors for sustainable practices. Through effective resource management and reduction of pollution, they contribute significantly to fostering a greener economy.

By instilling knowledge about the potential of unused cloth, paper, leather, and the art of repurposing them, this training ensures proper utilization of materials discarded by garment factories. Moreover, it champions income generation among the targeted population by creating viable employment opportunities.

The Oporajita project serves as a beacon of hope, illustrating how knowledge and empowerment can intersect to create a more sustainable future. Initiatives like this don’t just train communities; they empower them to act as catalysts for change, guiding us toward a more sustainable, circular future.
