Jagruthi Vedike (JV) formation and meetings at GP level- 2011

The JV concept was introduced in September 2011 in 25 GPs of 5 Taluks of our working area, to carry out the function of a supporting structure to strengthen the EWRs and the community women. JV advocates for the rights of EWRs and addresses issues related to good governance, gender and social justice.
During the year, 21 JVs were formed, each consisting of 25 to 35 members, who created a platform to provide motivation to 899 women for working towards better local governance.
