About the Mission

The National Mission for Empowerment of Women (NMEW) was launched by the Government of India on International Women’s Day in 2010 with the aim to strengthen overall processes that promote all-round development of women

It has the mandate to strengthen the inter-sector convergence; facilitate the process of coordinating all the women’s welfare and socio-economic development programmes across ministries and departments. The Mission aims to provide a single window service for all programmes run by the Government for Women under aegis of various Central Ministries.

In light with its mandate, the Mission has been named Mission Poorna Shakti, implying a vision for holistic empowerment of women.

The National Resource Centre for Women has been set up which functions as a national convergence centre for all schemes and programmes for women. It acts as a central repository of knowledge, information, research and data on all gender related issues and is the main body servicing the National and State Mission Authority.

Convergence Model

The CONVERGENCE MODEL is a project to test a model of delivery for convergent implementation of programmes intended for welfare and development of women. It has been originally intended to test this model in 30 districts spanning all states and UTs (Except Delhi), covering 640 identified villages. The model would include introduction of convergence cum facilitation centers at the district (few urban agglomerations), tehsil / ward and village/ area levels. The existing structural arrangements of participating departments wherever available shall be used and the PRIs shall be used as far as possible. The women centre at the village level, the first point of contact for women will be known as the POORNA SHAKTI KENDRA (PSK).

The Poorna Shakti Kendra (PSK) is the point of focal point action on ground through which the services to grassroots women would be facilitated. Village coordinators at the Kendras would reach out to the women with the motto “HUM SUNENGE NAARI KI BAAT!”
