Swadhar Greha 

The Swadhar –A Scheme for Women in Difficult Circumstances was launched by the Department of Women and Child Development in 2001-02. The scheme through the provisions of shelter, food, clothing, counseling, training, clinical and legal aid aims to rehabilitate such women in difficult circumstance. Centre for Market Research and Social Development, New Delhi conducted an evaluation in 2007 to assess the performance of both the schemes. The evaluation report while citing the effectiveness and positive impact of measures adopted under the schemes for counseling and rehabilitation found that the profile and category of residents, admission procedure, counseling, quality of service, vocational training, rehabilitation and follow up procedure are almost similar in both the schemes. It, therefore, recommended merger of these two schemes for better functioning and outcomes with lesser administrative burdens and procedures. It also recommended that the new scheme should focus on establishing one such home in every district. The positive findings of the evaluation study has encouraged the Ministry to propose this new scheme that would target the women victims of unfortunate circumstances who are in need of institutional support for rehabilitation so that they could lead their life with dignity
