Building women’s leadership at grassroots level

It has been observed that women are still not able to voice their concerns and participate without fear. Therefore, it is imperative to promote participation of women in the decision making processes at the village council level and make them aware of the importance of planning participatory for the development of the village.

We are currently working with women’s collectives in 65 villages to prepare a generation of active women to work as vigilant and monitoring agents at the Panchayat level. Our main purpose is to track the performance record of various state agencies and to develop a people centered mechanism to address the gap between the policy and its implementation.
