WHAT WE DO

RGMVP has developed a community-driven, inclusive and scalable model for poverty reduction and women’s empowerment, which has grown out of a strong network of Self-Help Groups and created a chain reaction across the most populous state in India.

OUR IMPACTS

HOW WE DO IT

We believe that that the creation of wellbeing alone is not sufficient, which is why we work to provide essential life skills and resources while simultaneously working to create agency among women in order to bring about a true transformation.

OUR STRATEGIES
01
UNITE WOMEN

Self-Help Groups provide a unifying platform through which women can demonstrate strong bonds of mutual concern.

02
BREAK HIERARCHY

We work to strategically disrupt deep hierarchies, which we believe are the source of poverty, inequality and exclusion.

03
IMPROVE LIVES

Beyond impacts on health, livelihoods and income, women experience increased levels of self-confidence and sustained agency.

We are an organisation committed to poverty reduction and women’s empowerment whose work is achieved through the fundamental values of unity, self-reliance, inclusiveness, support and volunteerism.

"The Samooh (SHG) is our family, our life, our inheritance. We would never allow it to disintegrate. We are what we are today because of it. After us, our daughters will take over."
