Our Rural Women’s Livelihood Programme (RWLP) currently benefits – through our five partners – the income-generation and micro-activities of more than 1,500 women formed into over 300 Self-Help Groups which, over the last 5 years, have generated over £200,000 to contribute to household incomes, the improvement of which assists nutrition, food security, health and hygiene within the family and boosts self-sufficiency within the village economy. Other projects supported by Jeevika and delivered by the same partners provide access to safe water, sanitation facilities and help families living with HIV/AIDS. Overall these projects have had an impact on or are currently benefiting nearly 100,000 villagers in over 100 villages across Tamil Nadu & Odisha.
