The mandate of the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), GoI is rural poverty alleviation through programmes directly targeted at the rural poor households. Within the ‘directly targeted’ category, there are programmes focused on wage employment and programmes focused on self-employment. The Swarnajayanti Grameen Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) is the Ministry programme which focuses on self-employment. This programme was launched in the year 1999, by restructuring the Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP).


“We are hoping Umeed will bring similar success in Jammu and Kashmir as well”, said Shri Gandhi. “We want to include women in the development process”

 

WHAT WE DO?

NRLM’s main focus is to stabilize and promote existing livelihoods portfolio of the poor , in farm and in non-farm sectors. Consumption patterns of the poor influence well -being, productivity and risk taking ability of the poor. The business risks, life cycle risks, higher costs for consumption/production and exploitative terms of trade expose the poor to extreme vulnerability. To cope with this, poor and vulnerable households pursue diverse and multiple livelihoods strategies. Interventions have to cut across all these layers.
