National Mission for Empowerment of Women (NMEW) aims to achieve the holistic empowerment of women through convergence of schemes/programmes of different Ministries/Department of Government of India as well as State Governments.


Under the NMEW scheme, technical support is being provided by domain experts to the Ministry of Women and Child Development. These domain experts are involved in the implementation and monitoring of new initiatives of the Ministry such as Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, One Stop Centres, and Women’s Helpline etc.


State Resource Centres for Women (SRCW) have been established to provide technical assistance to Departments of Women and Child Development/Social Welfare in respective State/UT Administrations on issues related to women. 25 SRCWs are currently functional.


In order to facilitate convergence of schemes/programs at the ground level, Poorna Shakti Kendra (PSK) project was approved in a pilot mode in selected districts which entails setting up of convergence centres at the District, Block and Gram Panchayat level. PSK projects are currently operational in 19 districts.


With the learning from Poorna Shakti Kendra project, Village Convergence and Facilitation Service (VCFS) has been approved for Beti Bachao Beti Padhao districts and 200 high burden districts (affected by malnutrition) in the country. VCFS aims to create awareness through Village Coordinators on issues related to women and facilitate convergence & coordination with the Gram Panchayats.
