    GREEN FOUNDATION began implementation of Mahila SaShakthikaran Pariyojana

    in the year 2012 and has treaded a long way in holistic approach towards rural

    women empowerment. Women empowerment encompasses a whole lot of niche

    areas which needs to be given priorities. At the beginning of the programme the

    proposal looked into inclusion of women in areas like marketing of agricultural

    goods, building their capacities as small scale rural entrepreneurs, involvement of

    women from seed to seed, reducing their everyday drudgery, active participation in

    convergence programmes and building their skills and capacities in land rights,

    health, and literacy.

    The year 2012 focussed on trainings in various spheres of agriculture bringing in

    awareness among the women on sustainable agricultural practices, backyard

    kitchen gardens, livestock management, access to government programmes and


    In 2013 GREEN Foundation left its footprints under MKSP by initiating various

    producer groups for value added production and marketing, Drudgery reduction

    tools like knapsack sprayers, smokeless chulah have received tremendous

    response from the beneficiaries. Activities like Demonstration plot initiated for

    900 farmers have once again proved that the sustainable agricultural practices are

    beneficial for land, economy, sustainability.

    Community Resource persons trained in first year were put on to test through

    monitoring of demonstration plots and initiation of permaculture kitchen garden

    plots. In the second year of the programme reached a higher platform towards

    development of rural women through initiations to producer groups which are

    small village level livelihood groups which will produce and sell their projects.

    Second year of the programme focussed on programmes which will lead to long

    term economic viability and sustainability. The programmes were designed in
