Support to the Government esteblished 10 Self help Groups on 4th March 2010

On 4th of March(International Women day week) we hosted a program for bringing the 10 Priyadarshini Adarsh Self Help Group women of Government Self Help Group(SHG) program under Sambhali Trust, Sheerni project Banner to introduce them to each other and the program trust runs.
We were Honored to invite the Women and Child development officials inclusive of the districts Deputy Director Saheb, the CDPO's , Pracheta, Lady supervisors, Anganwadi (Creche officers). We had privilege to invite Mrs. Susheela Bohra, Retired Deputy Director of women and child development in many districts of Rajasthan and now Secretary of Sambal Sansthan in Jodhpur. Mrs Ernestine Badegruber of Austria, Co-Founder and Director of Soziale Initiative operating from Linz, Mrs. Badegruber has come to Jodhpur for few days and have honored us by joining our board of Advisers and partnering the Soziale Initiative with Sambhali Trust.
Our Sheerni project Administrator Ms. Manju Mehta and all the Sambhali Trust team with the invited Mr. Mukesh who came from Dudu town near Jaipur to motivate the women by speaking to them about the importance of the Self Help Group program and how our organization will support them for the next six months to form model Self help Group out of them, in the program we also discussed how the group of women can form a cluster to sell their crafts or items produced, the power is in unity of these women and one women can not win the battle of empowerment, it is only possible to do it together with the support of all the other women.
Women spoke to the Government department about their problems in the group, we invited Laxmi ji from Art of Living to come and do some excersices of Yoga with the people present on this occasion to have a healthy start.

We had lunch with the SHG members, all together it was a wonderful day and we go to know soo much about these women of the groups. they are very happy to join us and want us to help them with education and Sewing... Our Sambhali Trust, Sheerni Micro Credit Project is limited to resources and wont be able to help them much because government is not giving us enough financial aid to really help the women the way we want and they require.
