Empower Rural Woman – Digitization Automation of Self Help Groups (SHG) across Goa

2 years agoopen44

There are more than 20,000 Self Help Group members across Goa and thousands of groups. The utilization or the empowerment of these groups and members is extremely low or none. There needs to be proper guidance, support, and management of these groups. They need to get into the next phase of owning their individual or groups business entities. The focus should be on their talent, product, and services – in the field of agriculture, food processing, catering, housekeeping, learning new skills, Basic digital technologies, and many other sources. By leveraging technology power, their livelihood can be further improved. The first step is to automate all their manual work into a proper workflow so they get the required support from all key stakeholders. Proper insights of their groups must be available for leaders to bring required changes.

Automate the current manual process/engagement of SHG to bring efficiency in operation and productivity. For SHG, Digital Baila will eliminate paper based manual processes and become a digital powerhouse, one-stop solution to manage schemes, projects, audits, and achievements efficiently and effectively. Jobs will be created locally, projects and schemes can be given to the local community which will create employment.

The platform will allow them to efficiently collaborate with each other across various groups and members of the community to demonstrate their capability. These benefits will truly help them to become self independent and confident to drive their self journey towards success.
We have successfully run the pilot last year with more than 400 women across North Goa – digitalbaila.com & this needs to further expanded now with the help of community.
