Sampurna: Life Cycle Intervention for Adolescent girls and Women

This novel intervention in Cuddalore district in Tamil Nadu is a cross-sectoral project with elements of health, education and livelihoods. This special intervention will be operationalized for young and adolescent girls and women across age groups from age 0 to 30 years. The ‘life cycle’ approach here implies that the same cohort of beneficiaries will be worked with in the entire life of the project.

The project will thus touch a wide range of issues specific for the marginalized in the district; including pre-school education, early nutrition, primary education, adolescent life skills, leadership, career planning etc. Thus, all stakeholders of various service deliveries will be engaged with; beneficiaries of the service, i.e. children, adolescent girls, and women, service providers, i.e. teachers, Anganwadi workers, health workers, government functionaries, and the environment, including parents, men and boys, communities.
