The mobile van is a unique concept of reaching out to the remotest area and the poorest of people like those in the remote salt pans.

 
  Information Dissemination
One of the main intentions to establish SSK was to create an information hub for the village community where poor and deprived members would be served by getting useful information. SEWA's ICT diffusion and also infusion in agricultural sector provided the necessary digital opportunities for productivity increase, for income generation, for decrease in regional disparity, and for improving farmers' linkages with the market.

To start with, the advisory services covered wide range of subjects starting from alternate cropping systems, producer oriented marketing opportunities and optimization of agricultural inputs - seeds, water, fertilizer, insecticides, pesticides and. Wherever possible, fodder-bank, grain-bank and seed-bank have been initiated at SSK to facilitate small and marginal farmers. These farmers also received information regarding weather forecasts which were helpful in preparing location and farming system specific action plans. The farmers had online access to market where they received day to day information on emerging market trends. Thus farmers benefited by an effective information system where they got knowledge i.e. what people wanted, at what price, where to get it, and who could supply it. This improved information flow and communication services and led to reducing poverty as people became more efficient because SEWA's ICT approach brought information to the wider audience and also enabled the audience to share its view.

Apart from agriculture sector related information, villagers also received information regarding functional schemes of government. These included information about all government schemes on agriculture, poverty alleviation, rural employment, social safety nets, food for work program and livestock related services which were disseminated through SSK. By this initiative, SEWA hoped to empower citizens by providing them with free access to information, making administration more participatory and ensuring greater transparency. All the information in this category was provided free of charge. The villagers benefited as they did not have to travel for miles or get hassled by bureaucratic red tape in order to get useful information and access various government services.

As a result, one of the biggest hits had been application forms that were distributed by SEWA which allowed people to pitch for dozens of poverty-alleviation schemes about whom the villagers earlier did not even know. Now they could take benefit from these services. The Government also benefited as it was able to “virtually” reach out to the citizens. Thus ICT based SSK, by bringing public services closer to the citizens, restored their faith in the government machinery. Citizens also started shedding their former servile attitude and sought information with confidence. They were now able to access government services and schemes which opened many windows of opportunity for them. These opportunities helped them develop their personal capacities in the course of empowering them to build a better and more stable tomorrow, for themselves and for their country.

Also, demand-driven information was delivered at the SSK by keeping in mind local-specific needs which was used in day to day life. Local members were also allowed to expand the variety of services they wanted to provide to the community. Diffusion of local knowledge along with adoption of cutting-edge, scientific knowledge empowered rural citizens in improving their living conditions and enabled them to make informed decisions for exercising sustainable livelihood practices.
