Programs & Achievements
  • Information Centre in No Connectivity areas - In 2005, GGMM (Sahyog) started its work in the interiors of the remotely situated villages (Atta, Kotla, Sadrana to name of few); wherein till date there is no connectivity with the main road. We also set up an Information centre, which has books & leaflets relating to different Government schemes, contact addresses of relevant department, paper cuttings related to women issues/ current affairs.
  • Awareness & Motivational Camps - In India, there are several women related beneficial schemes, however in 2005 we found out through our surveys that the carriers of these schemes to the needy are very less. Hence members of Sahyog started awareness camps for the same in the villages. So far, 64 Awareness camps have been organised in villages named Sadrana, Dhankot, Badshahpur, Sohna, Atta, Barota, Rampur, Dhulavat, Jafrabad, to name a few. These camps covered several subject like

  • Recognistion by Awards & Community Participation-
    • We showcase the achievements of several rural women in a structured manner; to make sure they get recognised in front of international delegations and several award functions. Such as, the rural women were awarded in an award ceremony by Smt. Vimla Sharma (w/o late Dr. Shanker Dayal Sharma, President of India 1995).
    • Several vocational trainings, awareness camps, self help groups empowered the rural women to the level that they are able to recognize their strengths and capabilities. This gives them due confidence to come forward and stand for their rights. As a result today they are holding important positions in the community and political arena. Few got involved as active vocational trainers; others got elected as a Sarpanch, Panch, Block Samiti President and members in their respective villages. Few others are working as Anganwadi workers, helpers and ASHA workers respectively.
