Project Director, DWMA through Commissioner Rural Development of Andhra Pradesh state has associated with LCDDP for ensuring employment rights of PWDs in MGNREGS – Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme Act in Prakasam District of Andhra Pradesh, India. LCDDP has worked in 13 Mandals of Prakasam District and reached 3306 Persons with Disabilities by ensuring eligibility to get works under MGNREGS and trained on provisions under the scheme to PWDs.

Under this project Organization role is to….

• Identifying PWDs in the Villages

We have started the work in 2012 and completed the work in 13 mandals in two phases (in first phase - 5 Mandals and in second phase – 8 Mandals) i.e. . Inkollu, Parchur, Maddipadu, Zarugumalli, Vetapalem, Karamchedu, Kothapatnam, Naguluppalapadu, Chinaganjam, Ongole Rural and Santhanuthalapadu

MGNREGS - TOTAL 13 MANDALS DETAILS


• LCDDP organized several sensitization programmes for Leaders of Self Help Groups on MGNREGA (Rural employment Guarantee Act) and its provision for accessing 150 days of unskilled manual work with good amount of wages. As a result SHG leaders are taking up the issues of employment rights under schemes like MGNREGA.

• LCDDP has been continuing to build the awareness on MGNRES in all its working locations. Now LCDDP is working in 7 districts in two states i.e. Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
