25 Dec 2019-Ladies Gram Panchayat at Chattipani



It is true when they say woman are the backbone of the society.  In Shirpur, the women of the village have taken a leadership role by creating a Ladies only gram Panchayat. All the women of the village are invited to join the gram panchayat. Here the issues of the village are discussed and with the help of LOK MANCH animators steps are taken to solve the problem. Every Thursday ladies Gram Panchayat meeting is conducted in the village.

Self Help Groups (SHG) has also been created to facilitate small scale savings in the village.  If any member is in need of a loan, the SHG provides it. The initiative of organizing Gram Panchayat and facilitating the smooth functioning of Self Help Groups have empowered Pawra woman.
