NTPC launches Girl Empowerment Mission for Corporate Responsibility
The Mission focuses on the empowerment of girls through various interventions and aims to identify and nurture their leadership qualities, so that they can be future-ready.


India’s largest integrated power company, NTPC Limited, is preparing to introduce the newest iteration of its flagship Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, the Girl Empowerment Mission (GEM).

The program aims to tackle gender inequality by nurturing girls’ imaginations and fostering their ability to explore opportunities.

GEM will provide a 1-month workshop for young girls during the summer holidays, by offering them a platform for their all-round upliftment and development.

Starting in April 2024, the new edition of GEM will add nearly 3,000 meritorious children belonging to underprivileged sections of society at 42 identified locations of the power sector PSU. With this, the total number of children benefiting from the Mission will cross 10,000.

The GEM Mission, initiated as a pilot project in 2018 with just three locations and 392 participants, has flourished into a nationwide movement.

Despite the hurdles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the program persisted in broadening its outreach and influence. To date, it has positively impacted 7,424 girls, with participant numbers steadily rising annually.

In 2023 alone, 2,707 girls engaged in workshops held across 40 NTPC locations, covering 16 states in India, showcasing its resilient growth and unwavering commitment to empowering young women despite adverse circumstances.

The Mission focuses on the empowerment of girls through various interventions and aims to identify and nurture their leadership qualities, so that they can be future-ready.

The GEM Workshop has garnered widespread acclaim for its holistic approach to skill development, confidence-building, and mentorship. By equipping girls with essential tools and unwavering support, NTPC aims to pave the way for a brighter future for upcoming generations.

It seeks to empower girls to become catalysts of change, influencing not only themselves but also their families, communities, and the nation as a whole.
