Mr Sarbjit Prasad ( Founder & Managing Director )
In the context of social work, inspiration often yields social benefit, making meaningful structural and political changes a reality. Mr Sarbjit Prasad was touched by this kind of inspiration while initially working at Bihar Viklang Sangh, an NGO dedicated to upholding the rights of differently-abled people. He saw, that by taking matters into one’s own hands and activism at the ground-level, many people’s lives could be positively transformed. He thus resolved to start his own NGO, and began by joining forces with existing SHGs and worked on making women more aware and self-sufficient. He realised his ambition in 1996 by establishing Ambedkar Gramin Vikas Sanstha.
Financial independence is and has been the path to emancipation for many women. It is by being a go-getter that these women have been able to take back control of their life. Ambedkar Gramin Vikas Sanstha is helping women realise such dreams by bringing them a step closer to economic empowerment. The NGO has worked primarily in Patna, Bihar since 1996.
It assists 100+ SHGs (self-help groups) consisting of over a 1000 women engaged in agriculture to save money and take loans.
They learn to save in pragmatic ways and they then deposit their savings in bank accounts to reap the benefits of their nifty strategies. The NGO also extends them a helping hand when they are in difficulty regarding their finances. It helps them apply for and avail loans from banks, which are used to start their own businesses. Once they have amassed enough profits, they are also aided in returning the loans to the banks.
Not just this, Ambedkar Gramin Vikas Sanstha also helps women out with the basic requirements of food and shelter by taking in abandoned and homeless women. Their nutrition, as well as rights, are ensured, while they are connected with various activists and officers who can further contribute to their journey towards freedom and self-realisation.
