Project Description

Women’s empowerment is all about equipping and enabling women to make life determining decisions. Vedanta recognises this need for empowering women and is running various projects to help the communities take a step towards a more equitable future. It is associated with around 35,000 women (up from 28,000 last year) and amongst them 3,600 women have started /revamped their own micro enterprises. One of the interventions in this space is the Subhalaxmi Cooperative Society in Jharsuguda which has emerged as a model community-based organisation. The Cooperative has successfully completed 10 years of empowering women since its inception and currently is touching the lives of 3,793 members in 71 villages. Through this programme, the Cooperative has been able to generate funds of `2.52 crore and through its various activities it has seen a significant increase in the income of the members.

HZL is running a similar programme called Sakhi which started three years ago and now has 1922 SHGs connecting the Company with 23,954 women. The total savings accumulated through this project are now at `6.22 crore and the total loans disbursed amounts to `17.13 crore, utilised for household consumption, agriculture, health & sanitation and 492 women utilised the loans to create new enterprises or expand existing enterprises
