Delhi govt inks MoU with DSEU to promote entrepreneurship among women

With an aim to promote entrepreneurship among women, the Delhi government has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) to provide the state of the art training. The MoU was signed by the director of the Women and Child Development Department (WCD) and the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) Registrar, in the presence of WCD Minister Kailash Gahlot.

“This MoU is helping to launch an era of women entrepreneurs through skilling and giving them a platform to innovate their own livelihood ideas,” Gahlot said. He further said that this journey is not only to empower women by providing them opportunities but also to educate them to empower themselves and generations to come.

“I am hopeful for impressive outcomes that will result from this partnership. The Delhi government is highly focused on creating employment, which was heavily reflected in our Rozgar Budget this year too,” he said.

Anchored in the department's 'Samriddhi Project', the MoU aims to undertake the Women Entrepreneurship Development Program to train existing and new women entrepreneurs in Delhi for establishing their own enterprise using the platform of DWCD’s Saheli Samanvay Kendra (SSK) Anganwadi Hubs.

As per the WCD department, 120 anganwadi hub centres will act as training-cum-business incubation centres for women entrepreneurs and for women micro-entrepreneurship programmes. One hundred women micro-entrepreneurial ventures will be supported under the programme and the capacity building of more than 2,500 women at anganwadis will be trained to move up the economic ladder.

The SSK is an intervention developed during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic for facilitating collective action to address socio-economic needs of women, girls, and children through more effective utilization of anganwadis. Principal Secretary, WCD; Pro Vice-Chancellor, DSEU; and other senior officials from WCD and DSEU were present during the signing of the MoU.
