Had a whole day workshop for the Tamilnadu State Rural Livelihood Mission (TNSRLM) district officials in Chennai on the Mahila Kisan Saskahtikaran Pariyojana (MKSP). The workshop was organized at the request of the CEO, TNSRLM and for the district level officers of the projects of MKSP that have been already accepted by the State Government under the Annual Action Plan (AAP) for the year 2013-14.
It was an insightful encounter with the different district level officials, it showed quite a bit of lack of understanding amongst some of them and there were far too many lacunae. There was much apprehensions expressed by officials coming from other district departments who were not sure about the speed and scale of the implementation that was being projected by some of the Pudhu Vaazhvu Project (PVP) district managers.
The programme was moderated by myself in the capacity of the MKSP, Consultant for the TNSRLM and facilitated by the JD, TNCDW, Mr. Lakshminarayanan. The Addnl. Director, Mr. Radha and CEO, Ms. Mythili Rajendran both participated in the programme.
