State Level Conference of SHAURYA DAL Members on 19 February 2014.



मध्य प्रदेश दृष्टि पत्र - 2018
( 100 दिवसीय कार्य योजना )


Tejaswini means “radiance” or “one who gives light”, and reflects the objective of the project in moving women to a higher level through their collective efforts and mutual assistance.

The inception process began with a request to IFAD from the Government of Maharashtra to develop a project for empowering women on the basis of a proposal developed by MAVIM (the Maharashtra Women’s Economic Development Corporation). This would up-scale and further develop the concepts tested in the Maharashtra Rural Credit Programme, which IFAD supported from 1994 to 2002. IFAD prepared an Inception Report in January 2004, which was followed by a formulation mission in November-December 2004. At the wrap-up meeting for this mission with the
Department of Economic Affairs in Delhi, it was agreed to expand the scope of the proposed project to include one more state. With the agreement of GoI, Madhya Pradesh was selected for inclusion in the overall programme.
