Environmental awareness among rural self help group members

A/Professor Laxmi Putran

Self Help Groups (SHGs) are formed in large scale in India. SHGs of women have become very common in villages of Karnataka. Large numbers of rural women have been enrolled into SHGs by both government and non government organisations with the aim to empower women. Self help groups are homogeneous groups of the rural poor. The number of members in the group ranges from 10 to 20 members. 

The objective of SHG formation is not only economic empowerment but also integrated empowerment by focusing on enhancing skills, knowledge, capacities and awareness generation. Self help groups are the platform to discuss various issues like environment, health and hygiene, child development, women empowerment and so on. The degradation of environment can be checked with the intervention of rural women SHGs.
