Summary

The key objective of the project is to develop, train and empower 100 tribal Indian women from Dadra Nagar Haveli to enable them to become self-sufficient through livelihood activities viz. Animal Husbandry, Organic Farming, as non agricultural earning opportunities are rare. Capacity building training and access to market links will also be provided to ensure that the women have the necessary resources to run a successful micro business and generate income beyond monsoon and avoid destitution .

Challenge

These Adivasi communities are affected by severe hardships. Women in this region have been cut off from development and progress and suffer significant gender inequality. Poverty, poor educational infrastructure, language barriers, etc. hamper access to proper education. Census data shows that female literacy was just 64% in DNH in 2011. The women especially have been identified as being highly oppressed and distressed due to lack of education, social issues and lack of livelihood opportunities.

Solution

Project Samruddhi aims to increase both the skills and confidence of the women, so that they can become self-sufficient earners throughout the year. Women who are economically empowered can transform their society from the inside, ensuring their children's education. The women will receive vocational training in animal husbandry, organic farming or Tailoring. They will also get exposure visits and awareness cum capacity building workshops. Post training they will be provided links to market.

Long-Term Impact

Increase in earnings. Increase in savings. Stable household income throughout the year. Reduced dependence on agricultural income. Increased loans from the cooperative through the expansion of women's businesses. More women attending Panchayat and other community meetings. Better lifestyle, better education for children, reduced oppression of women folk, better public participation in local governance
