Mahila Mandal

ACDSSS began its work of empowerment and mainstreaming of the excluded groups through the medium of Mahila Mandals (women’s groups). The hands on experience with the Mahila Mandals proved to be a miracle with many and many groups joining in. Promoted as the platform of collective action and pressure groups, the Mahila Mandals meet, discuss and decide for the benefit of the village community. It has been striving to fight for the rights of the excluded groups of the society.

A total of 1400 rural women have been organized into 600 village level Mahila Mandals stand as the axiom of women’s empowerment. ACDSSS is working towards women empowerment right since its formation and it visualizes a society with gender equity.

The objectives to work towards women empowerment are multi-pronged:
• To attain the gender equity
• To have equal opportunities for girl children to education
• To ensure participation in decision making beginning from family circles
• To eliminate all forms of violence against women
• To promote economic independence
• To motivate for political participation and their effective role in decision making
• To build up local leadership
• To mobilize public opinion on specific issues and problems of women
• To build a strong women’s movement
• To network with other women organizations

Under women empowerment development interventions are those which affect the entire society. Thus emphasis is laid on women education, women health, income generation activities, resistance of exploitation and attainment of social justice.
