f Kishori Shakti Yojna

kishoriAdolescence is an important phase in the life of any woman, as she approaches womanhood. She goes through physical as well as emotional changes during this period. She is caught between the innocent world of childhood and the real world of grown ups. Her personality also develops in this period. This is the period when she most needs the support of parents, family, friends, teachers and the community.

Girls in the rural area are comparatively shyer than those in urban societies and are not very communicative. They also do not have access to adequate health and nutrition information or services. Their mothers themselves have been deprived of proper guidance on health, nutrition during their growing-up years.

Many girls are married off even before they have reached the age of 18 years. They are ignorant about what lies ahead and soon become mothers themselves.

Under the Kishori Shakti Yojana Project we have identified and selected young girls in the age group of 11 to 18 years from our Block and are focusing on their self-development, nutrition, health, education, literacy and recreational skill formation. These groups after attaining complete training become ambassadors of Kishori Shakti Yojana for their respective villages and area.
