The first step in our 16 years of journey was supporting women SHG movement in the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh in 2001 and across several states in the country. The credibility gained in terms of building social capital through strengthening of rural and urban SHGs provided an impetus to empower the poor and marginalized communities through promotion of livelihoods, natural resources management, integrated farming systems, farmer producer organizations, and model villages besides reaching out to a few developing countries (Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam).

Currently we have direct field presence in the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar and through SHPIs (self-help promoting institutions) in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. Whereas, the focus of our capacity building initiatives and Research & Advocacy is in several states across and outside the country.
