Patna-based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Sahyogi, was incorporated in 2008. Sahyogi focuses on sensitive issues like gender-based and domestic violence, social security, women empowerment, child rights, education, and health. Sahyogi organizes several drives/awareness campaigns every year.

Some of their activities are:

  • HDFC Bank Training Program: In view of the financial constraints that every family in the targeted area faces, this skill-building program strives to empower women, and the community at large. Sahyogi has provided training to nearly 2,500 women of different groups in Bihar and Jharkhand, with the support of HDFC Bank. The trades covered were candle making, garment designing, making soft toys, artificial jewellery, tailoring, bindi making, papad making, phenyl, and making artificial flowers. These groups will be further supported by HDFC Bank in accessing funds for business/self-employment. Sahyogi volunteers and community leaders have ensured delivery of quality training to the participants.
  • Training and campaign on Gender Based Violence (GBV): The main objective of this is to help participants understand GBV and its dimensions, as well as to understand community based actions to stop it. Nearly 10,000 people were reached through community meetings, IEC and folk media shows. Sahyogi also urges the government to strengthen their support and redressal system. Also, to address the adverse sex ratio, Sahyogi campaigns in its target area and educates the target groups, especially women, on this issue through street theatre, wall paintings and also by distributing pamphlets.
  • Awareness Drive on Sanitation: Sahyogi organizes awareness programs for the community leaders to spread the message of saving and reusing water, promoting sanitation and hygienic behaviour in the community, through wall paintings, folk shows and nukkad meetings.
  • Other Programs: Sahyogi conducts other awareness and training programs like Bal Mela, Child rights in slums, Communication training, School Chalo Abhiyan, Orientation-cum-sharing meeting on Rajiv Awas Yojna (RAY), Women’s rights and entitlements, and Shiksha Jagrukta Abhiyan.
