The ILD centres of JKTGVY serve as equal opportunity empowerment centres for both men and women.
The unemployed women in rural areas are identified and given an opportunity to associate with JKTGVY as a "Lady Gopal", with the responsibility of running an Integrated Livestock Development (ILD) Centre. These women are then employed to provide animal breeding and other veterinary services and have now become a symbol of empowerment in this male dominated sector.
Thus, a Lady Gopal's activities not only helps the local farmers to improve their surplus earnings, but also makes her more confident about her abilities to manage, lead and be an independent, self-earning woman.
Equipped with new skills and with financial stability, now a rural woman is ready to go out in the world with her head held high! The SHG's formed under livelihood creations are also majorly women oriented.
