Women Empowerment is the primary need to save nature's balance and humanity. Saving Girl child is a first and foremost responsibility of the society for its own sake. However, the alarming increase of Female Foeticide has drawn attention and generated a greater concern amongst the intellectuals, social activists and philanthropists. HCMS has taken up this issue and working vigorously on this highly sensitive social concern. It has initiated various awareness programs on saving dignity of the Girl Child. HCMS is focused on addressing sex discrimination issues leading to gender disparity in education & sex selection amongst the most vulnerable sections of society in urban and rural locations.

Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) shall rest on the foundation that the mobilisation of urban poor households to form their own institutions is an important investment for an effective and sustainable poverty reduction programme. These institutions of the poor would partner with local self-governments, public service providers, banks, private sector and other mainstream institutions to facilitate delivery of social and economic services to the poor.

We have developed 652 SHGs & 40 Area Level Federations (ALFs) in above municipal areas under the scheme. An Area Level Federation (ALF) is an association of SHGs consisting of representatives from all member SHGs, with the objective of supporting member-SHGs, (guiding and monitor the functioning of SHGs and forming and training new SHGs). The federation of SHGs is essential to deal with larger issues like bank-linkage, inter-group lending, negotiations with higher level structures and to gain greater bargaining power over the rights and privileges of SHGs. We identified suitable economic activity on the basis of their qualification & available local infrastructure for each group. We provide skill training to the members of SHGs & linked them with banks.
