Empowerment of women and the impoverished people.
Sisters are actively involved through various activities and programs in the empowerment of the women, girls and the poor people of the villages. The poor people in the villages often lack adequate food and shelter, education and health. They also face extreme vulnerability to ill health, violence, economic dislocation, and natural disasters. And they are often exposed to ill treatment by institutions of the state and society and are powerless to influence key decisions affecting their lives.
 
In India, women Empowerment is a buzz word to-day. As a nation, India is committed to the empowerment of women. The level of community participation in development projects and programs funded by donors or governments has increased greatly over the last couple of decades. Our sisters in Jokalandi and Shankarkole have organized women's/men self-help groups after giving training to the leaders and members of the community. The results are amazing:
 
  • Savings
  • Equal access for credit
  • Credit for livelihood projects or business
  • Group enterprises
  • Being elected to the Panchayat and other local bodies
  • Community development for better services and facilities
  • Social harmony, justice, gender and ethnic equality
  • Improving the condition of village schools, health centers etc.
  • Training in Herbal medicine and its usage by the people
  • Improvement in the quality of life
  • Managing the village projects of the Government
  • Active participation in the affairs of the community
  • Fight against alcoholism and gambling
