Empowering women to transform themselves,
their families and villages!

At Govardhan Eco Village, we believe empowering a woman will create a ripple effect to achieve a huge impact on the society as a whole.

Empowered women are detrimental to holistic development of a community and society. This holds true especially in rural settings.

Thus Govardhan Rural Development Programme captures the essence of empowered women and is implementing Women's Empowerment program with an inclusive and participatory approach.

Since years together, rural women have been considered to be incapable of contributing to the financial status of the family. Their capabilities, talents and skills were restricted to the four walls of the house.

Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. Education reduces poverty, empowers women and helps prevent disease.


Involving women in the planning and development stage of a development program as well as at the decision making level has made a difference to their presence. This is evident with documented case studies where women are creating success stories with increased self-confidence, self-esteem and dignity. Increased shareholding in family income and assets are a proof of the same.

Women from rural project areas are being educated about the power that lies in their hands, they are organized in self-help groups, encouraged to take the microcredit programs and small enterprises for income generation. More than 180 groups of women have been formed with a membership base of 1900+ women benefiting nearly 10,000 people.
