Empowering Rural Women

by Sukarya


The financial and social status of women in rural India remains a matter of great concern due to Illiteracy, poverty, gender disparity and unemployment. The vision is to make them socially and economically empowered, so that they can lead their life in a dignified manner. Through self help groups, these rural women will be trained for production, packaging, sells and marketing for the proposed spices and cereals unit. 20 women, 20 families and 100 beneficiaries will be directly benefited.

It is all about the women living in the rural village. Due to Illiteracy, poverty, gender disparity and unemployment the overall status of these women are very insignificant in the society they live in. Through organized self-help groups, Sukarya will ensure the economic and social empowerment of these women. The objective is to train these women to run a processing and packaging unit of spices and cereals, so that they can earn their own livelihood and live a life with dignity.


It is proposed to open a new standard production and packaging cereals and spices unit in the village ensuring livelihood programs to generate sustainable income for rural women to support their livelihood and to get rid of poverty. Through self-help groups, these women would be given training and apprenticeship on entire gamut of Store keeping, processing, packaging, selling, accounting and small entrepreneurship skills.

Long-Term Impact

Saathi project has been part of Sukarya since its inception and has been successfully implemented in many villages. 20 women would be gainfully employed under this proposed unit. They would earn a significant amount at par with state minimum wage policy. Around 20 families would get direct benefit through this intervention. Around 100 people would be benefited. A sustained source of employment would be established. Poverty will be alleviated and it will inspire hundreds of other rural women
