Economic Empowerment

Self Help Groups

The tribals struggle to meet even their daily needs. To eradicate their deprived condition and to release the Vanavasis from the clutches of moneylenders, VKK has formed Self Help (SH) groups for the eventual financial needs. This is a group of 15 to 20 people where each individual will save minimum of Rs. 30 per month. This money is deposited in bank, and loans will be given to members out of this corpus. There are over 300 such Self Help groups in Karwar district.

The Self Help groups are playing a major role in creating awareness and confidence in tribals, especially among women.

Tailoring Training

VKK aims at making the Vanavasi women self-reliant. The tailoring training centers at selected areas will mobilize and train women of these areas in tailoring. This generates employment and economic stability among the tribals. Full time women volunteers (seva vritis) provide necessary training. The training will be for 6 months to 1 year, and is totally free.

After the training, assistance is also given to obtain the machines from government schemes and through donors.
