Empower single women to access their rights

What I'm Leading

I am impacting widowed, single and  vulnerable women of rural Maharashtra by empowering them to access their rights to property and livelihood.

Who I'm Impacting

500 women


About Me

I am Minakshi and I live and work in a small village of western India's Maharashtra state. My core work is to gather and share information about government schemes with local women. I especially work with self-help groups and a big part of my job includes conducting staff reviews, and monitoring and designing new training programs. In my community, there have been a high number of farmer suicides, leaving widows behind with no financial support or respect from the community. I want to connect these widows to bank accounts, government schemes and loans for them to build or develop small enterprises.

My Vision

A world where every woman has equal rights
