Lucknow: The launch program of Mission Shakti Phase-3 was organized in the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh in the august presence of Governor Anandiben Patel, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath along with the country’s Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman.

On this occasion, 75 women of the state have been selected who were given Mission Shakti Awards for doing excellent work in the earlier phases of Mission Shakti.

During Mission Shakti, Neeta Ahirwar, Deputy Director of Bareilly Division and Nirupama Singh, Protection Officer of Varanasi District, have been selected from the Women and Child Development Department, who headed the campaign in the state.

Neeta Ahirwar worked as the nodal officer of Mission Shakti among various departments in Bareilly district during Covid-19. Neeta played an important role in connecting various departments of Bareilly district as well as voluntary organizations and various entrepreneurs with the mission.

Along with this, print, electronic, radio FM, social media (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter) were specially used by them to reach the objectives of the mission. Continuous efforts were made by Neeta to ensure the presence of public representatives and senior officers of the district in district, block and village level programs.

It was her priority to connect more and more women and children with the promotion of departmental schemes. As a result, during the period of Mission Shakti in Bareilly district, after the death of her husband, about 7000 new women were added to the destitute women’s pension scheme and about 8000 new beneficiaries were added to the Mukhyamantri Kanya Sumangala Yojana.

Giving importance to Mission Swavalamban in Bareilly, “Hunar Ki Pathshala” program was started with the women of Mahila Sharanalaya Bareilly, through which women are being linked to various skill training programs. Along with this, more than 25000 girls have been provided “self-defense training” by preparing about 260 master trainers at the school level and it has been decided to conduct this program continuously in the district.

During the mission, she played an important role in organizing dialogue / interface programs between women and police and administrative officers and got the complaints made by more than 50 women resolved during this time.
In the district, more than 12000 participants were self-oriented on various laws related to women and children through webinars, seminars etc. In the district, innovation program was started in the form of “Bareilly ka Hunar” program for children especially girls, under which more than 1000 children participated.

Nirupama Singh, Protection Officer of Varanasi district, along with working in the District Child Protection Unit of Kovid, played an important role in the implementation of One Stop Center, Beti Padhao-Beti Bachao Yojana, Uttar Pradesh Rani Laxmibai Mahila and Bal Samman Kosh etc.

Nirupama’s focus during Mission Shakti Abhiyan was to create such mechanisms which would provide security and protection to women, especially the girl child, even after the mission. For this, he organized regular meetings of Village Child Protection Committee and Block Child Protection Committee and specially made girls aware on the issues of child marriage and sexual exploitation. Involving all the members of the Village Child Protection Committee, they formed WhatsApp groups at the development block level, so that they themselves could reach the issues of women and girls through technology to the village level.

As a result, they also found a medium to bring the issues related to women and girls to the administration among the general public. During the mission, Nirupama made efforts to make the general public aware against child marriage in the entire Varanasi. During Covid itself, they were stopped after receiving information about 18 child marriages under the mission. During this, on many occasions, he got information about cases of sexual abuse, on which immediate action was taken and the survivors were rescued by him.

As a result of continuous meetings on the issues of child protection under the mission, 193 children have been identified in the district to be associated with the sponsorship scheme, in which formal action is in vogue. While leading the department, along with women and children, teachers and Anganwadi workers were also trained on the issues of violence against women.

In the last three weeks, a record 01 lakh 55 thousand new eligible girls have been added by the Women and Child Development Department under Mukhyamantri Kanya Sumangala Yojana, in whose account the amount of benefit due will be sent during the launch program of Mission Shakti Phase-3.
