Mission Director's Desk   

The State Mission in its 5th year of implementation. In the last four years, it has observed tremendous progress in achieving the program targets and objectives, particularly in harnessing the innate capacities of the poor women in Nagaland who are experiencing new hope through this noble Mission. The increased level of participation from women towards the program through SHGs and their enhanced capacity through continuous nurturing and training is enabling women to initiate sustainable and strong community institutions (Federations) to participate in the growing economy of the State.

Mobilization of poor to form their ‘own institutions’ is the most important prerequisite and the core investment for large scale poverty reduction. NRLM would organize all poor households (women) into aggregate institutions of the poor that provide them with voice, space and resources.
National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM)is a mission that focuses on improving the credit flow to the rural poor women through the promotion of Self Help Groups and Institutions of the Poor.
According to Census 2011, out of a population of 1978502 in Nagaland, 1407536 live in Rural areas which account for 71.5% of the total population. Similarly, at 277491, Rural households make up 70.8% of the total household in the State.
The primary objective of the Mission’s Monitoring and Evaluation system (M&E) is to reinforce the culture of result-based management and provide the basis for evidence-based decision-making processes, of both strategic and operational nature, at all levels including community institutions.
