The Odisha Livelihoods Mission (OLM) was launched in 2011 under the aegis of the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) – Aajeevika. The Mission’s objective is to reduce rural poverty in Odisha by creating and strengthening community based institutions, which can function as pathways to sustainable livelihoods.The Mission is currently being implemented intensively in 107 blocks and the remaining 207 blocks will be brought under the Mission fold by 2018-19, through a phased approach. The Mission seeks to alleviate rural poverty by creating and nurturing of the poor which will in turn mediate the livelihoods of the rural poor. The four core components of the Mission are: (i) inclusive social mobilization and community institution building; (ii) financial inclusion; (iii) promotion of sustainable livelihoods and employment opportunities of the poor; and (iv) enabling the poor to access entitlements, public services through line departments and PRIs.
The Mission builds on the learning from the World Bank supported TRIPTI project which had adopted strategies and components similar to NRLM. The Mission is implemented through a three-tier structure viz., State Mission Management Unit (SMMU), District Mission Management Unit (DMMU) and Block Mission Management Unit (BMMU). The qualified & professional manpower is required to achieve the mission’s objectives.
