As an NGO in India, we observed that some change in the status of women but this scenario is reserved only for the urban and developed regions. As we go to rural areas, the situation of women remains unchanged.
This must be solved at the grassroots level. This attitude must change now. Domestic violence is another curse of rural India. There is no quick fix to this problem. The real solution lies in a wholesome approach that can gear the complex reticulate issues of economic welfare, social justice, education, health, and traditions. Women are undoubtedly the backbone of our society because of their unique ability Multitasking and delivering multiple roles every single day. We just have to stand by her and support her to see her blossom because when we empower a woman.
As an NGO in India who stands for women empowerment, we suggest Macro, and micro level empowerment programs must be implemented to provide a solid base to nurture the inner strength and self-esteem for the women in rural India.
Our motto When a woman is empowered, a family is empowered.
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 earn an independent livelihood through self-employment. As an NGO in India, we conducted different training programs that equip women with the required skills to pursue new livelihoods in rural areas. As an NGO we continuously empower her we empower a family, a community and a whole generation.
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 earn an independent livelihood through self-employment. 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.

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