Self Help Group is a small group or team of homogenous people (mainly women) for face to face interaction and relationship. The membership of SHG may range from 5-20. Social & economic homogeneity is very important.
It’s based on trust, belief and conviction that the Community, no matter how backward, marginal, less of resources that can be mobilized for meeting individual as well as family’s needs and that of the Community for making local improvements and bringing about social change.
SREEJAN Livelihood Development focuses on the empowerment of women by building their own Self Help Group, which is based on and built upon Self-respect and Self determination. To the economically & socially downtrodden rural women, the idea of Self Help Group is not only Economic Independence, but also has a strong social aspect for bringing about social transformation.
