NGO Profile :
Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP) is a learning and development organization that aims to bring women and poor communities from the margins to the mainstream by forging partnerships with institutional actors and providing technical support for community driven development.

Their programs include:

  • Women’s Entrepreneurship & Leadership Initiative (WELI): In an attempt to empower women from remote villages SSP has created an ecosystem of training, funding, facilitating rural marketing distribution and networking which is enabled by thorough mentoring by experienced women entrepreneurs who act as a role model for the women training under this initiative. 170,000 rural women have been launched as entrepreneurs in fields related to retail, clean energy, climate-resilient farming and health and nutrition.   
  • Women led Climate Resilient Agriculture: SSP has been working toward ensuring cultivation rights to rural women over their family farm and gain control over selling produce to local markets. Currently, SSP teams support over 10,000 women farmers. Women are empowered as farmers and innovators in rural development by promoting bio-farming, diversification of crops, waters harvesting, soil conservation with an objective for long term sustainability and to increase nutritional awareness and food security.
  • Water Sanitation, Health & Hygiene: By training rural women as health entrepreneurs or ‘Arogya Sakhis’ SSP aims to deliver low cost health and sanitation services at the doorstep of rural communities. Arogya Sakhis with the support of UNICEF also act as community facilitators for water budgeting and allocation, conservation of water and create access to WASH related products. They promote clean and green practices with regards to climate change.
  • Building Community Resilience: The aftermath of Kerala Floods left the many homes in their villages submerged and people were relocated to relief camps. SSP patterned with several organizations and Gram Panchayats of the villages to develop a resilience program for underprivileged communities 3 flood affected villages. Rural women were trained for entrepreneurial activities like formation of farming groups, mobilization of indigenous communities, house reconstruction, etc.
