Formation of SHGs under GRAMIN


To organize the targeted people into SHGs as the platform for motivating and imbibing the concept of self-help for their socio-economic development is the flag-ship activity of GRAMIN. Since 1995 we are forming SHGs; first in three villages by the personal effort of the founder chairman and his two lieutenants and later in Sonitpur district with financial assistance from NABARD under its project “Awakening Ahalya” and later under several schemes. But in the last few years we were gradually withdrawing from formation of SHGs. But the process did not stop. The role of SHG as the most trusted means of rapid socio-economic development was already deep rooted in the minds of the rural people. As such the process continued in our area of operation and SHGs were formed in different part and they approached GRAMIN for guidance. In this year we formed 53 SHGs in Dhemaji, 6 SHGs in Lakhimpur district and another 18 SHGs in Sonitpur district. Seven women SHGs were formed of isolated women under Ujjawala. In this way we had the responsibility of another 77 SHGs in different blocks/ district as shown below:
