Project ANANYA is focused on the formation of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) under Swaranajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojna (SGSY) guidelines. SHGs are formed at Panchayat level and SHG federations at block level. ANANYA focuses on organizing the poor at the grassroot level through the process of social mobilization for poverty eradication. SGSY’s approach to organize the poor stems from the conviction that there is tremendous potential within the poor to help themselves and that the potential can be harnessed by organizing them . Social mobilization enables the poor build their own organizations (Self-Help Groups) in which they participate fully and directly and take decisions on all issues concerning poverty eradication.
