The meeting was attended by a total of 85 members from different SHGs within the municipal area. The participants showed good response with huge number of them volunteering for the various platforms offered for livelihood support and sustainability.
The core belief of Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) is that the poor are entrepreneurial and have innate desire to come out of poverty. With the challenge to unleash their capabilities in order to generate meaningful and sustainable livelihoods, they need to be provided sufficient capacity so that they can manage the external environment, access finance, expand their skills, enterprises and assets. This requires continuous and carefully designed hand holding support.
PBMC stands committed to the cause of the poor and lend full support to make them # Aatma Nirbhar.
All those interested to be a part of the Self help group under DAY-NULM can contact the Project Officer, UPA Cell, PBMC.
