The elements of women’s empowerment are deeply ingrained in all interventions of BJUP.
Women Leading Change is being implemented by BJUP with the support of the Centre for Catalysing Change, New Delhi. This project is getting implemented at Hisua and Sirdla Block of Nawada District. The aim of this project is to have an interactive discussion by engaging with the Elected Panchayat members’ viz., Mukhiya, Up Mukhiya, Ward Members including Block Medical Official, Block Health Manager and Block Centre Manager could discuss the Health Status of the Women. It is also to assess the condition & current situation of state government’s health programme being provided at different Anganwadi centre & also at Health Sub Centre. The participants explored several options based on the findings, deciding on these options and decide the way forward for improvement. Participants explored several options, strategies, new procedures for operation and management. They also recommended ways of improvements in the conditions of mothers & Children in the family. Improvement in the status of Mother and Child is critical for holistic development. BJUP started working at 10 Panchayat of Hisua Block & 15 Panchayat of Sirdla Block. We get details from 25 Panchayat of 261 elected Panchayati Raj representatives; out of these 183 women, 51 are Men ward members.
