Abstract

Women remained excluded from the social, economic, political and cultural fabric of development. Conventional poverty eradication efforts of the state to mainstream women failed in achieving the intended goal. For mainstreaming the women of weaker sections self help groups are considered as an effective tool. Government of Andhra Pradesh undertook two different initiatives with the financial support of World Bank. Impact assessment of these two programmes would help understand the impact of them on mainsreming of the women. Data and information collected in PRAs is used in arriving at the impact of the SHG model in mainstreming the women.
