Samjong Cooperatives Showcase: Elevating Excellence with Value-Added RNR Products Exhibition

March 1st, 2024

Coinciding with the joyous celebration of His Majesty the Fifth King, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck’s birth anniversary, the RNR Exhibition unfolded on February 21, 2024, within the newly constructed Farmer Sales Outlet, funded by CARLEP-IFAD under Samdrupcholing Drungkhag, Samdrup Jongkhar. Samjong Cooperatives, comprising 19 members (7 females and 12 males) from 11 gewogs, collaborated harmoniously to showcase 37 distinct value-added products, meticulously crafted from locally sourced materials. Noteworthy was the individuality of each exhibited item, highlighting the diverse talents within the cooperative, and a remarkable absence of duplications. Financially supported by CARLEP-IFAD with a substantial sum of Nu.8 lakhs, this exhibition underlines a dedicated commitment to community development and economic empowerment. The primary goal was to provide significant benefits to Samjong Cooperative members by presenting their value-added products to the public. This strategic initiative aimed to offer a platform for these beneficiaries to promote their locally crafted goods, thereby stimulating economic growth and enhancing market visibility for the cooperative. Beyond commemorating the royal birth anniversary, the event symbolized collaborative endeavors, external backing, and an unwavering dedication to improving the socio-economic well-being of the involved rural communities.
