The project is participatory in nature where, the local people form an implementation committee, implement the project in a time bound manner with local participation in the form of finance and labour.

Women Empowerment Activities

About Us

The Shri Kshethra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project (SKDRDP) was founded with single important purpose of "Inclusive Rural Development". To achieve this we created 3 main things for Individuals. They were Loans, Insurance & Pensions which ushered Financial Stability.

  • Linkage to banks (earstwhile Pragathi Nidhi)
  • Sampoorna Suksha Health Insurance
  • NPS now Atal Pension Yojana (APY)

To enable people to inculcate the habit of helping others, we started organizing Self-Help Groups which are called as Pragathi Bandhu Groups (PBG). Our lending and Training programs are geared towards members and their families. As every family has 3 types of people, we have special programs focused these 3 focus groups.

  • Family Head - huge array of programs under Agriculture division.
  • Women Empowerment - Jnanavikasa to make them self-sustainable.
  • Children  SujnanaNidhi scholarship

Apart from family, Community also matters, hence we have a special division called as CDP (Community  Development Programs) to develop the Rural Infrastructure.
