Project Description

The SAKHI project is geared towards mobilizing rural women into self-help groups (SHGs) and developing their capacities around leadership, skill development, savings and entrepreneurship. Under this project, there are 1922 SHGs with a membership of about 23,954 with total savings of ₹ 6.2 Crore and cumulative loans of ₹ 17.13 Crore including credit of ₹ 2.7 Crore leveraged from banks. 18,053 women availed loans from SHGs for various purposes like livelihood activities; education, debt redemption and house hold consumption. 492 women have started or expanded their micro-enterprises. Two other significant developments from the year were:

  • An SHG normally consists of 10 members. Within a village there would be 10-15 SHGs, who come together to form a Village Organization (VO). 30-odd villages are then registered as an autonomous women’s federation. This 3-tier structure of women’s organisations is what provides a pathway to financial self-sufficiency. The project now has 126 functional VOs and five federations with a base of 23,000 women were formed during the year
  • Two of the largest programs – Khushi and Sakhi were brought together under various initiatives. One example is the involvement of about 140 women in stitching uniforms for 60,000 Khushi Anganwadi children under the ‘Khushi Baatiye’ Campaign
