We operate in the urban slums and nearby villages of Bangalore, Karnataka, targeting the women, children, youth and men of these areas. These are mainly engaged in construction, stone cutting and agricultural labour work.

A baseline study indicated the following about the group
80% of the people were from backward communities and oppressed
Low literacy levels
Men did not support the family and it was the woman who ran the household
Our various interventions have succeeded in promoting the integrated development of these people.

The understanding of the health related issues are better understood and it reflects in the living conditions of the people and also the efforts of a few in particular, who have taken up the role of spearheading the initiatives in their respective locales. These women leaders not only take lead in the areas of communicating health related issues, they are also acting as socio-legal advisors.

The condition of the women and the family as indicated in the baseline survey portrayed a dismal picture of the conditions of the people in our target area. With our commitment towards empowering women, we felt the need to organize self-help groups and provide them with micro-finance to operate micro-enterprises and improve their conditions. We have formed 200 groups of about 15-20 members each and have initiated micro-enterprises with an investment of about 50 lakhs.
