Why Cooperative Groups?
Achieving gender equality remains a challenge, as significant differences persist in health, education and income. Many women of the society are a housewife only. They are not directly involved in income generation for the family. It affects the equal role of the women in the family.
Cooperation is necessary because it enables people and groups to work together to achieve a common goal or to derive mutual benefits. Cooperation allows participants to exchange valuable information that helps both sides and increase their knowledge bases and work in a time and resource efficient manner. The goal of our cooperative program is to train and improve the women to become small and medium Entrepreneur and to achieve financial and socio-economic benefits.
