HRDS INDIA An NGO for Women Empowerment

HRDS India is one of the best NGO's who stands for empowering women mostly in the rural area. In rural areas, females are still facing a big problem concerning several factors such as education, marriages, forced child, prostitution and even poverty.

As an NGO empowering woman, we thank full to Dr. Muhammad Yunus of Bangladesh who showed us how we could help women by earn independently.

The concept of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) is the brainchild of Dr. Muhammad Yunus of Bangladesh to empower the poor women of that country to make an independent livelihood through self-employment. The sunshine Dr. Yunus brought to the dark, and squalid alleys of Bangladesh now spreads its golden rays of hope into the lives of millions of poor and down-trodden people around the world. As an NGO who works for women empowerment, HRDS INDIA began formation of SHGs way back in 1999 on the 'Yunus model' of Bangladesh Grameen Bank. 750 SHGs formed by HRDS INDIA are now in Micro Credit operation in Udumbanchola, Peermade and Devikulam taluks in the Idukki district of Kerala, besides 2000 such groups in the tsunami-affected in coastal areas of the Kanyakumari district, Tamilnadu, India.

SHGs are the human element in the rural development strategy of HRDS INDIA. Each SHG is a team of rural poor who have volunteered to organise themselves into a group for the eradication of poverty of the members. They agree to save regularly and convert their savings into a common fund. Members of the group agree to use this and such other fund that they may receive as a group through a common management system.
