2 days workshop concludes at Narbal & Beerwah

Budgam April 24:(KNS)  With an aim of ensuring awareness and entitlement of Government welfare programmes around 1200 women self help groups (SHGs) members associated with J&K Rural Livelihoods Mission (JKRLM) would be trained in three districts of J&K in the coming months. The project is being sponsored by Axix Bank Foundation and is being implemented by Haqdarshak Empowerment Solutions Pvt Ltd which is a Pune based company. In the last 2 years Haqdarshak has raised awareness and understanding of  dozens of Govt schemes among more than 200,000 citizens who are entitled to get benefits under these schemes. In the first phase the women SHGs of JKRLM would be working in 3 districts of Kashmir namely Budgam , Baramulla and Pulwama. Haqdarshak organised a two day training workshop in Narbal and Beerwah blocks which concluded on Saturday. Almost 100 women SHGs were trained in the workshops which were conducted by trainers associated with Haqdarshak.

“ The response from women SHGs of JKRLM is great and I am sure they will do great work in the months to come to create awareness and ensure people get benefited out of different Govt schemes like Marriage assistance , old age pension , widow pension , making of Adhar cards , Pan cards , e-Shram card and Golden cards. Around 47 women SHGs were trained in Beerwah & 50 at Narbal during last 2 days and these women will now go to people to assist them and they will get a nominal fees as well from the beneficiaries which will be their source of income “ said Reshikesh Mishra the master trainer of Haqdarshak

"Haqdarshak has helped more than 120,000 citizens apply for schemes, of which around 100,000 have been successful in accessing the benefits they’re eligible for. Our company is working across 24 states and we started our operation in J&K very recently by hiring around 15 fellows , 3 district coordinators and one senior coordinator. These are all local residents. The local boys and girls whom we interviewed recently were all highly qualified and we found great talent here among the youth. I am sure we will get very good results by ensuring the citizens whom we reach out to in the next couple of months get benefits of Govt schemes. I am grateful to the Mission Director & Additional Mission Director JKRLM for providing us necessary assistance. We plan to train around 1200 women SHGs in 13 blocks of Budgam , Baramulla and Pulwama. Not only the citizens will get entitlements under different Govt schemes in the next 4 to 5 months but this will help the women SHG members to also make some income during this process by charging some modest fees from their customers "  said Mirza Owais Baig Senior Manager of Haqdarshak.  

Pertinently Haqdarshak works with 24 state Govts and several reputed  non-governmental partners including TATA Trusts, Save the Children, Pradhan, Crisil Foundation, DHFL Foundation, JSW Foundation,  Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation  ITC, Godrej etc.(KNS)
