Rajiv Gandhi Mahila Vikas Pariyojana (RGMVP) is a rights-based organisation working for poverty reduction, women's empowerment and rural development in Uttar Pradesh. With a commitment to the poor's strong desire and innate ability to overcome poverty, RGMVP organises poor rural women into community organisations in the form of Self-Help Groups (SHGs), each with ten to twenty women. SHGs are social platforms to access rights and entitlements, and address issues of financial inclusion, livelihood, healthcare, education, and the environment.
