Title

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SELF HELP GROUPS: A CASE STUDY IN KAKODONGA BLOCK OF GOLAGHAT DISTRICT OF ASSAM

Abstract

Abstract: Women empowerment is a process in which women challenge the existing norms and culture, to effectively promote their well being. The participation of women in Self Help Groups (SHGs) made a significant impact on their empowerment both in social and economical aspects. SHGs are a viable alternative to achieve the objectives of rural development. SHG plays a pivotal role in social transformation and social economic betterment of rural women. Assam is a flood affected area where people cannot depend purely on agriculture all through the year. Moreover Assam is based on its agro-economic climate conditions. Thus non-form activities like handicrafts, rope making, embroidery, catering services, repair shops, cattle farming, fisheries etc., give immense scope for women to earn their livelihood when they do not have income through agricultural activities. Banks in association with NGOs give training to SHG members in all these activities. The Government of Assam encourages the SHG activities and marketing of their products. In this paper an attempt has been made to examine the role of SHG in developing socio economic status of rural women, and to identify the satisfaction level of self-help group members in SHG activities. There are 4949 SHGs in Golaghat district of Assam consisting of 8 blocks. Among the blocks, Kakodonga Block was selected for this study; of which 18 groups are selected at random. From these selected SHGs, 200 members have been selected to collect the necessary primary data. The Chi-square test and average method is used as statistical tools for analyzing the data and testing the hypothesis. The conclusion of this paper is that Self Help Group is an important tool which helps the rural women to acquire power for their self supportive life and nation building efforts. The study has been carried out in the lines of the work by A. Angel Anila (2012).
