Rural Environmental Awareness and Community Help (REACH) is a grassroot level voluntary organization working for the empowerment of rural poor and those dependent on natural resources for livelihood, environment protection issues, and establishment of communities rights over non-timber forest produce. REACH has also extended its activities to community health and education, childrens and womens rights, empowerment of local governing bodies like Gram Sabhas, and strengthening Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs). REACHs interventions have covered 180 villages of 5 districts in Karnataka.

Their activities include:

  • Tailoring Training Centres: REACH, in collaboration with Government of Karnataka’s Khadi and Village Industries, has started imparting training in tailoring to women at their Training Centre. On completion of the course, the women are placed in local garment production units/factories, or work on contract basis, or start their own tailoring centres. The Centre has helped rural women earn an annual income of Rs50,000 to Rs80,000. In FY15, around 300 women benefitted.
  • Women’s Land Rights: This is a pilot project of Landesa and REACH to effectively impart training and conduct literacy programmes on women’s rights relating to land. The objectives are: (i) To strengthen women’s knowledge about their land rights. (ii) To create awareness about benefits of land rights. (iii) To strengthen skills of adolescent girls on land rights. (iv) To know the importance of the woman titling.
  • The Hunger Project (THP):  Strengthening Women’s Empowerment through Electoral Process (SWEEP) is an extensive pre-election campaign undertaken by THP in the state Grama Panchayat’s election cycle. It promotes women’s political participation in democracy. It aims to include and increase women’s participation in local elections as informed voters, candidates, campaigners, election agents, and responsible citizens. SWEEP also looks into the need to support marginalized women contesting from non-reserved seats. A key focus of SWEEP is to ensure a violence free, fair and free election.
  • Sustainable Optional Uplifting Livelihood (SOUL): The project is supported by Indo-Global Social Service Society  for formation of functional, dynamic, and community-based democratic people’s organizations, supporting the rights-based approach for livelihood enhancement. Activities include Awareness on basic rights & food security schemes, Training in sustainable Agriculture, Self-Help Groups formation and Income Generation Activities, Awareness of MGNREGA, and Formation of Vigilance Committees.
