Nearly 15 of tribals from Singampathy village near Kovai Coutrallam underwent a training to make jewellery and small toys out of the wood of Lantana camara, an invasive plant species found in the region. The training was the part of DST project of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham to empower the tribal community. "We have already conducted training for them to make furniture and organic farming. In the third part of the training, we teach them to make toys,” said Dr. Maya Mahajan, Associate Professor, Centre for Sustainable Future, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.
