Mahila Shakti Kendra Scheme (MSK)
Mahila Shakti Kendra (MSK) under the Umbrella Scheme Pradhan Mantri Mahila Shashaktikaran Yojana (PMMSY) has been approved for implementation. The Scheme will provide an interface for rural women to approach the government for availing their entitlements and for empowering them through awareness generation, training and capacity building. Student volunteers will encourage the spirit of voluntary community service and gender equality. These student volunteers will serve as "agents of change" and have a lasting impact on their communities and the nation.
The new scheme MSK works at various levels. While, National level (domain based knowledge support) and State level (State Resource Centre for Women) structures provide technical support to the respective governments on issues related to women, the District and Block level Centres provide support to MSK and also give a foothold to women empowerment schemes including BBBP in 640 districts to be covered in a phased manner.
Community engagement through Student Volunteers is envisioned in 115 most backward districts as part of the MSK Block level initiatives. Student volunteers plays an instrumental role in awareness generation regarding various important government schemes/ programmes as well as social issues that have an imp[act on lives of women in a given block (or equivalent administrative unit, when such blocks are not in place).
The scheme is being implemented in 26 Districts of Gujarat.
