We collectivise women and mobilise them into people's institutions to enhance their voice and status in society; strengthen decision making; and tackling local social issues.
Apex institutions like Village Organisations and Federations are helping SHGs to sustain initiatives, and providing a platform for women to unite and advocate against key issues.
Creating market linkages is very important to sustain micro enterprises to further ensure the economic empowerment of women. ACF helps facilitate both backward and forward linkages for different enterprises, based on value chain analysis.
SHGs play an important role in addressing local social issues. Across locations ACF-promoted SHGs have been working on different social issues like child marriage, alcoholism, education for girls, widows and many more.
Outreach of our women empowerment program has been expanded across locations. Networking has been developed different partners across India and expansion made. Gujarat and Punjab are doing exemplary work in this regard.
Across ACF programs we work tirelessly on the proliferation of these people’s institutions which share the responsibility of both the ups and downs of the process of development. This is our greatest achievement in itself, and we firmly believe this, in fact, is the strongest indicator of sustainability.Know More
