Streeshakti Kendra (GRC-SK)

Gender Resource Centres-Suvidha Kendras serve as first point of contact for the community. These structures have been set up by the government in partnership with the civil society organizations (CSOs) to reach out to people and take government programmes to communities. GRC-SKs have been setup in areas having vulnerable families based on poverty mapping exercise with a mandate to cater to 15000-20000 households (approx.. population of 100000). Starting from just 4 in number, a quantum jump has been made in the last 3 years to have 104 such centers and 20 extension centres all over Delhi. Besides assisting in availing entitlements, these centers work towards Social, Economic and Legal empowerment of women by interventions in the area of Legal Rights, Economic initiatives-skill building, microenterprises and entrepreneurship development and health. 

In the institutional set up for Mission Convergence, the significance of setting up structures and delivery points closer to the community was realized from the outset. The need for making women as the focus to facilitate the process of change and empowerment was a learning borne out of previous experience of successful public private partnership programmes for community outreach. The GRC-SKs today act as a single window and first point of contact for information and facilitation for improved access to the welfare services/ entitlements to the vulnerable and needy.

The GRC-SKs  have the following objectives:

  • To act as a catalyst for making Delhi safe for women through social legal and economic empowerment
  • To improve Health of women
  • To impart skill for specific trades and to provide forward and backward linkages enabling women to be a part of productive work force to obtain good remuneration.
  • To provide facilities with linkages for school drop outs to return to mainstream and to provide non-formal functional literacy
  • To establish a mechanism for linking existing government schemes for women and to enable women to access it better.
  • To raise awareness on issue of relevance and provide legal literacy about women rights.
  • To set up a documentation center which  acts as a clearing house for information of women and  works towards a system of affiliation of the organization working on the same issue .
