Taking a gender equality approach to support rural women in advancing their social, economic and political rights.

Supported by the UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality and implemented by PRADAN in partnership with Jagori, a programme on “Facilitating Women in Four Endemic Poverty States of India to Access, Actualize and Sustain Provisions on Women’s Empowerment” organized over 75,000 marginalized rural women, including over two-thirds from Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, into self-help groups (SHGs), to transform gender relations, raise their voice against violations and access their political and economic rights as mandated under the Central and State government policies. A set of three reports capture the processes, learning and insights from the programme for development practitioners, donors and wider audience.
