Women’s Development

Economic inequality and gender bias have driven women to become active in the global human rights movement. In this onward movement women have come together to form Self-Help Groups. It is an effective grass root institution to facilitate access for women to means of development, be it information, financial and material resources or services. It is a dynamic change-agent in bringing about empowerment and socio-economic development of women for the transformation of the society.
