Promotion of WSHG and Cluster Development for JDP

Promotion of SHGs

Balivara OFFER has adopted more than 250 numbers of Self Help Group (SHG) as the appropriate people's institution which provides the poor with the space and support necessary to take effective steps towards greater control of their lives in private and in society.

The primary focus of SHG is to provide emotional and practical support and an exchange of information. Through their participation, members help themselves and others by gaining knowledge and information. SHG are voluntary, and they are mostly led by members. Generally, groups meet on a regular basis, are open to new members, and do not cost money to join.

Promotion of SHGs

Self-Help Group, non-formal organization formed by people (mainly women) with a common problem or situation, for the purpose of pooling resources, gathering information, and offering mutual support and services. The group should maintain simple basic records such as Minutes book, Attendance register, Loan ledger, Cash book, Bank passbook and individual passbooks.

Though NJB has extended major support for promotion of JDP, but it is worthy to mention that NABARD and KVIB have also extended cooperation for promotion of JDP. Even KVIB has also agreed to provide support for Common Facility Centre. Besides, DIC, WBTDCC and other NGO have also provided assistance to the WSHG for JDP development.
