JD Institute of Fashion Technology, a pioneer in the field of design education for the past 31 years, announced its association with Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan (DJJS) for the social project called Antarkranti – Prisoner Reformation & Rehabilitation Program. It also held a seminar for students at its corporate office in Hauz Khas, where noted fashion designer Ms Rina Dhaka and senior program specialist Ms Jaya Bharti were present.
The students attended a training session to create designs of saleable products out of swatches of size 14″X 14″ funded by Welspun & Ogilvy company. The design created by the students will be shared with prison inmates who will also be trained to develop products out of the swatches. The agenda of the program is to generate opportunities and employment for jail inmates. The students will be certified by Ms Jaya Bharti and Ms Rina Dhaka.
Ms Rupal Dalal, Executive Director, JD Institute of Fashion Technology, said, “We are pleased to associate with this project. Involving students in social activities gives them a sense of responsibility towards the society.”
