:: KISHORI SHAKTI YOJANA ::


Introduction:

Kishori Shakti Yojna (KSY) is a means to empower adolescent girls, so as to enable them to take charge of their lives. Under this scheme, a special intervention has been devised for adolescent girls, using the ICDS infrastructure. This intervention focuses on school drop-outs, girls in the age group of 11-18 years, to meet their needs of self development, nutrition, health, education , literacy, recreation and skill formation. This scheme attempts to mobilize and enhance the potential of adolescent girls as social animators. It also seeks to improve their capabilities in addressing nutrition and health issues-through center-based instructions, training capos and hands-on learning as well as sharing of experiences.

Preference is given to younger girls, in the age group of 11-15 years, and belonging to poor families. 20 girls in the age group of 11-18 years are identified from all the eligible girls in this age group in the Anganwadi Centres.
