Assam Rifles, operating under the Headquarters Inspector General Assam Rifles (South), demonstrated its unwavering commitment to the empowerment and well-being of communities through two impactful initiatives.
Pre-Recruitment Training Programme:
Assam Rifles organized a comprehensive two-week pre-recruitment training program from 4th December to 22nd December 2023 in Chandel District. Geared towards aspiring individuals seeking opportunities in defense services, the initiative aimed to prepare and equip young men and women for fulfilling careers in the Security Forces.
The programme, which attracted significant interest, saw the participation of 29 individuals from diverse communities. Covering essential aspects of the Army and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) selection process, the training included modules on physical fitness, written test preparation, and mock selection tests.
Conducted by seasoned instructors of the Assam Rifles, the program provided participants with expert guidance and mentorship.The meticulously crafted curriculum instilled discipline, physical endurance, and a profound sense of duty in the candidates.
Assam Rifles remains steadfast in its commitment to empowering the youth and fostering a resilient and capable generation for the Security Forces.
Health Awareness Lectures on Waterborne Diseases, Dengue and Malaria:
In addition to the pre-recruitment training, Assam Rifles organized two health awareness lectures . On 22 December 2023, an awareness lecture on waterborne diseases took place in villages HiangtamKhunou and Suangdoi, Churachandpur with an aim to promote a healthy and disease-free society. Emphasizing the preventability of over 95% of waterborne diseases through simple precautionary measures, the lecture focused on educating women and children on various facets, types, and preventive measures to ensure zero waterborne infection.
On 21nd December 2023, a lecture on the causes, symptoms, and precautions of Dengue Fever and Malaria was conducted at Village S Khollen in Churachandpur District for 35 villagers. Given the region’s susceptibility to mosquito bites due to its hilly terrain and dense jungles, the lecture highlighted the importance of awareness and preventive measures.
These initiatives reflect Assam Rifles’ holistic approach towards community development, encompassing both the preparation of youth for national service and the promotion of health awareness to build a resilient and healthy society.
