Mahila Sammelan Back

Gujarat Women Economic Development Corporation Ltd. organises Mahila Sammelans in various Districts of the State to apprise the women about current schemes of the Government, provisions of Law for women and other women related issues. It targets to cover 3,00,000 beneficiary women by organising 26 such Mahila Sammelans throughout the State.

In these Sammelans, ‘Mata Yashoda Award’ of Women and Child Development Department are given to ICDS women and funds are also awarded by various donors for Kanya Kelavani Nidhi. Cultural programmes are also organized. In Mahila Sammelan for the year 2012-13, which was organised in Ahmedabad, ‘Mata Yashoda Award’ and cheque for Kanya Kelavni Nidhi were distributed at the hands of Hon. Chief Minister. Nearly 40,000 beneficiary women have participated in this programme.

Hon. Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi and Hon. Incharge Minister were kind enough not only to remain present in the Sammelan, but also encourage women by giving their inspiring speeches.
