Twenty cured disabled leprosy patients with grades 1 and 2 deformities from 17 villages were given training in trades like cycle repairing, tailoring, pesticides spraying, doll making, cane work, cigar making, fish net knitting and incense stick making.
The duration of the training varied from two to tsix months depending upon the trade.
