|Self Help Groups
At present, GMKS is supporting a total 827 women across 42 SHGs. 827 SHG members are having saving of Rs.12,35,00/- and five lakh is under rotation through internal loaning.
GMKS has successfully
established hundreds of SHGs in the region.
These SHGs cater larger economic needs of the
people living in below poverty line. The marked
improvement in the functioning of the SHGs can
be seen in facilitating better water resources,
quality seed distribution for cultivation, micro
finance for purchasing of cattle and mitigating
other economic needs. The formation of SHGs
has remarkably helped thousands of villagers
to take loans and other financial assistance
during drought and other financial crisis situations
thereby making their conditions better by creating
various livelihood opportunities in villages.
After operation of the SHGs in this tribal region,
the significant improvement noticed is the crop
production and generation of employment opportunities
for landless labours. Majority of them rely
on agriculture. Drought and water paucity badly
affect the livelihood of poor people. Equitable
distribution of water through SHGs has been
seen impacting on livestock and cattle business.
This has allowed the people to increase per
capita access of water and to raise their average
reduction and stop migration:
Successful operation of these SHGs has also
seen in helping the villagers to stay in the
villages and involve themselves with some income
generation activities. Opportunities to work
both in farm and non-farm based activities increased
and hence created new avenues for employment
and livelihood. The migration towards town area
is reduced in a great extent in the whole region.
on child education:
Better crop production and substantial income
generation opportunities in the villages have
not only helped the poor people to raise income,
but these have inevitably helped the children
belonging to these poor families to enroll for
the schools to access primary education.
As a result of availability of water, women
don’t require walking long distance in
search of water and they have more time now
that they spend to take care of themselves and
their families. This has remarkably reduced
in-house tensions and they could be able to
devote more time and attention towards child
health and education. Becoming a member of the
village development committee also provides
an opportunity to woman to take part in decision
