(TPAK- MSS Collaborative project)

Although India has been consistently making economic progress but the condition of women especially rural women is still poor.

Most women and girls are educated only up to the elementary level and largely lack a social voice.

As a result of the discrimination these women do not realize their full potential

This project which the MSS is implementing with help from JICA aims to help the women and girls achieve their dreams and fulfill their ambitions.

The project is running from May 2009 in 20 tribal and minority dominated villages of Vikasnagar area in Dehradun. The project targets girls between the age of 10-19 years

Objectives of the project: -

  • Reducing gender inequalities and raising community awareness
  • To empower women and girls through educational programmes and skill development

The project has carried out the following activities-

  1. Establishment of a Gender Resource centre in Kehri Gaon, Dehradun
  2. Establishment of Sub Gender Resource centers in project villages.
  3. Organization of Adolescent girl groups
  4. Identify and develop peer educators through trainings
  5. Organization of Male support groups to promote awareness and gender equality.
  6. Hosting fairs and health education campaigns
  7. Vocational Trainings and Career Guidance
  8. Income generation activities through sewing classes and other activities
