With the objective of women empowerment, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to include women’s self-help groups to provide nutritious food to pregnant women and children.
What is the Scheme?
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on 8th September 2020.between the United Nations Food Scheme and the Uttar Pradesh Government’s National Rural Livelihoods Program.
The purchase and distribution of this nutritious food will be delivered to the needy women and children through self-help groups. This will provide employment to a woman from a poor family in a rural area, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Now this scheme will be implemented in 204 blocks in 18 districts and later in 75 districts of the state.
