One day Awareness Camp on Socio Economic Empowerment of Women was inaugurated at Dilli Haat, Pitam Pura, today by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Women and Child Development, Smt. Krishna Tirath. She emphasized that the Ministry of Women and Child Development is committed to the all round social development of women and children in order to ensure their growth into able citizens and their participation in the progress of the nation. In order to achieve this overarching objective, the Ministry in partnership with its constituent organizations regularly organizes activities to raise the awareness of the public and especially women from the needier sections of society about the programmes and activities that are available for women’s empowerment under the Ministry.
As a part of this effort, the Ministry organized this one day awareness camp in collaboration with the Central Social Welfare Board, Rashtriya Mahile Kosh and Food and Nutrition Board at Dilli Haat, Pitampura, New Delhi on 23rd July 2010. The camp included several stalls which disseminated information about the programmes of the CSWB, loan schemes of RMK and demonstration and display by Food and Nutrition Board on low cost nutritive recipes. The CSWB had organized a free health check ups for the women participants, blood donation camp, Family Counseling Centre and Women Helpline booth. The Rashtriya Mahila Kosh had put up stalls for display of material produced by Self Help Groups. Apart from this, NGOs shared their experiences about their work for women’s development.
The Central Social Welfare Board has developed a statewise NGO directory for its programme of Short Stay Homes and a list of NGOs for Family Counseling Centre programme. The directories were released by the Minister for Women and Child Development Smt. Krishna Tirath. The RMK has also developed a state-wise NGO list which was also released by the Minister, Smt. Tirath on the occasion.
This initiative of the MWCD seeks to help women of the lower socio-economic strata participate in a public event to gain knowledge and information about activities that can help them to enhance their social capital and build economic strength and self reliance. The aim is to engage women in an informal environment and give them an opportunity to share the experiences of other women who have benefitted from developmental programmes of the Government of India and particularly the Ministry of Women and Child Development.
