Project Director & Addl. District Mission Director
District Rural Development Cell & District Mission Management Unit
Team Anandadhara includes District & Block Mission Management Unit, 64 Sanghas at Gram Panchayat level, 934 Upa Sanghas at Gram Sansad level and 15791 Rural Women Self Help Groups covering 160238 Households in Dakshin Dinajpur. We believe that Women can transform the society by leading their communities towards socio-economic development. The individual commitment for achievement of group efforts are vital to reduce diversified risks and to better the social indicators for empowerment and growth. For FY 2018-19, the Mission is “To include at least one woman from every Household in the SHG movement” and the Vision is “To uplift the Rural Women from abject poverty to respectable Livelihood through Community participation in Bottom-up approach”, along with strengthening the Economic Activity and Sustainable Livelihood practices. We shall ensure closer link between Rural Communities, Various Government Departments, Banks and other stakeholders with SHG Women of Dakshin Dinajpur. We shall focus on increasing the self-esteem of Anandadhara SHG members by inculcating a Participatory Approach with innovation in training to include values of rural life. I envisage that Team Anandadhara shall come together once again for a new beginning; sincerely working for progress and moving forward together by reaching the benefit of NRLM to the last house in the farthest hamlet of the village, keeping in mind the larger objective of holistic development of our District.
