Svashaasan - Self Governance

Self & inclusive governance for good governance

  • Social & political empowerment of women for social political & economic justice
  • Meaningful participation of women & youth in the decision-making processes of governance

Since 1979 SCRIA is striving for women to have an equal and a stronger voice in the social - political - economic decision-making processes. SCRIA has been actively facilitating for a politically enlightened & active group of women who will participate as citizens’ or enter the system for bringing about a meaningful change. SCRIA has also been encouraging youth in the region to adopt & practice the principles of gender equity & development.

We facilitate capacity building in a holistic way with training, back up support systems, institutionalization of mechanisms (Networks) to strengthen capacities, enabling environment for greater gender sensitive delivery of services by developing multi-stakeholder partnerships and constituency building so that women are able to articulate their voice and participate in the governance process. For this we support & organize -

  • Capacity building activities – trainings, workshops, study tour
  • Dialogues
  • Campaigns 
  • Newsletter
  • Tele help line
  • Issue based federations

Success Stories
Shakti Parishad
Braving the odds out, in 1997 a group of eleven women leaders from different villages of outreach came together for helping other women fight for their rights & dignity. The members have vowed to help victims of domestic or gender violence, social intolerance, economic injustice etc.. The group is known as Shakti Parishad. The members act as a pressure group and do the needful to secure immediate relief and justice for the victim. They lobby with the pertinent administrative bodies, legal offices, social and political institutions. SCRIA provides supportive services to the Parishad and facilitates specialized training for members on legal issues, acts of law affecting women, legal process & procedures, role of Panchayat & various government agencies involved etc.. Over the years Shakti Parishad has assisted women in more than 6 dozen instances of which 21 required major interventions. To financially assist victims the group has initiated a fund called Shakti Kosh. Donations from SCRIA’s staff, women motivators, volunteers & others have made this kosh possible. The group is responsible for its upkeep and management. Churu district also has a chapter of the Parishad with 19 members & it is very active.
