WOMEN EMPOWERMENTAltering power equations
We believe that mere political empowerment doesn’t succeed in the absence of economic empowerment. Education is the biggest liberating force.
Women Self Help Groups (WSHGs) have transferred the real economic power in the hands of women and have considerably reduced their dependence on men.
This project has helped in empowerment of women and building their self-confidence. The Self-Help Groups work for the women in a number of ways: they provide guidance, give support and assistance to women and they identify and promote home-based enterprises among its members. WSHG members take loans from the SHGs and set out to begin an enterprise of their own.
Currently NARABD is supporting SHG formation and it is also interlinked to our various projects. Nurturing Self-Help Groups of rural poor women is MSSVP’s key tool in fulfilling its mission and goals.
