At the center of family life, Indian women hold the key to positive change in their communities.
Amrita SeRVe has supported over 850 rural women in forming Self-Help Groups (SHG) of 10-20 members throughout India.

In 20 states, over 60 SHGs have bank accounts. Having regular meetings and leaning to maintain a log of minutes, Amrita Self-Help Groups are well on their way to a self-sustaining system.
