BANGALORE: Karnataka State Social Welfare Board on Thursday observed National Girl Child Day in Bangalore. To mark the event, electronic Application For Women Empowerment and Development Action (e-AWEDAN), a software that enables registered voluntary organisations to submit applications for grants-in-aid under various schemes of the Central Social Welfare Board, was launched. Speaking on the occasion, Chairperson of Central Social Welfare Board and former Rajya Sabha member Prema Cariappa underscored the need to stop female foeticide in the state.

How does e-AWEDAN works?

Through  e-AWEDAN, one can send request grants and check the status. For this, one needs to register their voluntary organisation and enable it to submit grant applications online. Once done, they can apply for various schemes of the CSWB like family counselling centre, condensed course of education for women programme working women’s hostel scheme, awareness generation programme, and so on.
