Women’s Day 2019

March 2019

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.

Main Goals:
– Promotion of health awareness for families.
– Promotion and support of children in completing their studies.
– Storytelling sessions that inspire community action.
– Internal lending based on regular monthly deposits.

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.
