ABOUT US
 
 
 
 

beginning

In 1979 a small group of social activists initiated an integrated development program for Khori village as an initiative in the region. The focal village Khori is in Khol block of Rewari district in the state of Haryana. From Khori village multifarious rural development activities were taken up for surrounding villages too. The region is the most backward in the state.

Perceiving and pursuing a goal of organizing rural communities, especially women, for a meaningful relationship as partners in progress, SCRIA has also promoted local groups in Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Assam who have initiated development work in the rural areas of their region.

Outreach
 
Outreach – Area
 

SCRIA works in 1800 villages that are in Rewari, Mohindergarh, & Jhajjar districts in southern Haryana & Alwar, Churu districts in northern Rajasthan.

The whole region is semi arid while Bikaner & Churu are arid. It is interspersed with sand dunes and barren hillocks of Aravali ranges. In this semi arid zone, days are warm and nights are cool, with the maximum temperature rising upto 51 deg. C. in summer and plunging to -4 deg. C. in winter.

The region faces a chronic shortage of water for drinking & for irrigation purposes. The table of ground water is very low and most of the ground water belts in the region are highly saline and not potable. The region has rain - fed - agrarian economy and is solely dependent on the vagaries of monsoon rains. No other alternative source of income is readily available. The density of population ranges from 90 to 250 persons per sq. km..

 

Outreach – Population

 

Women, men & youth from outreach villages

The region has a traditionally limiting and rigid patriarchal society where role of women is defined by their place within the socio economic system. Women do not have any say over social & economic affairs in family & society men control it all. In political sphere too strong patriarchal control marginalizes participation of women. The women here are affected by the dominant ideology of the society, but this does not completely insulate them against an awareness of their subservient position.

 
Focus
SCRIA’s focus is on working with communities to develop appropriate messages. We believe in participatory approach for effective and sustainable development in rural areas. People’s participation leads to long-term efficiency, cost sharing, self-reliance, grass root initiative and finally to enhanced village level organizational capacities.
 
Rural populace, especially women, are involved at every stage of the development process - from problem identification & needs assessment to project formulation, implementation, monitoring & evaluation.
