This scheme will be implemented in 5 districts in Chhattisgarh: Surguja, Bastar, Raipur, Rajgarh and Rajnandgaon.
This project brought together MARG, UNICEF (Raipur) and the Department of Woman and Child Development, Govt of Chhattisgarh, in collaborating to ensure the effective implementation of the SABLA scheme in the selected districts of Chhattisgarh.

MARG developed posters, flip charts, a training module and booklets on various issues related to the empowerment of adolescent girls for use by the Government of Chhattisgarh.
