Enhancing Women’s Participation

From the very beginning, AJSA has persistently worked with women’s groups and committees at the village, Panchayat and block level’s to help them address issues of denial of rights, and privileges organiseing them into self-help groups and cooperative societies to gain a stronger voice. This space enables women to develop the confidence that they need to be able to speak out even when men are present. In a village council meeting, this allows women to play a greater role in the decision-making process. The objective behind formation of self-help groups is to help women increase their savings and access small credits, but gradually this turns into a platform enhance the capacities, where women speak out and gain confidence, which enabling them to voice their opinions in village meetings (Gram Sabha’s) and become active participants in the village development process.
