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
- Jeevan Madhura Life 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.
