Rajiv Gandhi Scheme for Empowerment of Adolescent Girls [RGSEAG] – SABLA is proposed by the Ministry for Adolescent Girls of 11 – 18 Years, whereby the Nutrition Programme for Adolescent Girls (NPAG) and Kishori Shakti Yojana (KSY) would be merged with content enrichment. The scheme is proposed to be implemented using the platform of Integrated Child Development Services Scheme.
The scheme aims at empowering adolescent girls (AGs) of 11-18 years with focus on out-of-school girls by improvement in their nutritional and health status and upgrading various skills like home skills, life skills and vocational skills. The scheme also aims at equipping the girls on family welfare, health hygiene etc. and information and guidance on existing public services along with aiming to mainstream out of school girls into formal or non-formal education. For the nutrition provision, 11-14 years out of school AGs and all girls of 15-18 years would be covered since Mid day meals do not cover 15-18 years girls.
