(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Environment Society of Oman (ESO), as part of the Egyptian vulture research project funded by the Hima fund, organised and managed a vocational training programme.

A press release said that in addition to the scientific aspect of the project, a two-week socio-economic training was given last December to women in Masirah. The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) Jordan, provided expert advice on making of handicrafts. Twenty four Omani unemployed women below the age of 25 participated and completed all sessions on handmade paper recycling and silkscreen printing.

The group of young women succeeded in producing different designs related to Masirah's nature, specifically the endangered Egyptian vulture.

These designs and produced samples were the subject of a local exhibition attended by H E Sheikh Sulaiman bin Salim al Mahruki, the Wali of Masirah besides General Nasser al Saadi, a representative of the Royal Flight and members of the local community. ''This initiative is very important on social development level as well as on the environmental level,'' said Dima Radwan, community outreach and environmental education manager.

Lamees Daar, executive director, ESO, said, ''ESO believes that there is a role for everyone in the labour market and we strive to help our participants find their role as well as enhance their skills to increase their independence. We are especially pleased that this capacity building programme gave a chance to participants to discuss their learning needs and to empower and motivate young women to be part of the national workforce.''

The feedback from all participants was very encouraging for ESO to look for additional funding to implement its educational mission in rural areas. ''I have learned the importance of time management and accuracy in implementation, and their effect on production,'' Wadha al Farsiah, a trainee, said
