    Women Empowerment

    Home > Our Work > Women Empowerment
    Various studies, as well as our experience, have shown that when we work towards women empowerment, the whole society benefits. But unfortunately in India, far from empowering women, most are denied even their basic rights like health, education of girls for women empowerment, employment and a respectable status in society.

    Swabhiman, meaning self-respect in English, was initiated in 2005 to address these challenges through a simple yet effective approach. The programme is specifically aimed at realization of both individual and collective self-esteem and inner strength for marginalised and socially excluded women and adolescent girls through innovative community practices.

    A tailor-made strategy called the '4 S Model' has been developed under Swabhiman, the women empowerment programme. The ‘4 S Model’ is an acronym for four novel approaches, namely Seeking Healthcare as a Behaviour, Support for Education, Supporters through Male Involvement, and Sustaining the Change in Communities.

    The programme identifies adolescent girls and women from the community and develops them into Change Agents, who in turn actively contribute to the community mobilization process.

    So far, Swabhiman through women's education empowerment program and health programmes has successfully made a difference to the lives of over 560,000 women and girl children.


    It was the 5th of January 2001, when we founded Savalee Balsadan led by Sankalp Pratishthan Ahmednagar (under Social Act 1860/Regi. Maha. / 551 and 1950 F 6426 Mumbai Public Trust) with only 3 children. Then, in the month of May 2007, we shifted to an improved place at Bhushan Nagar, Kedgaon, Ahmednagar.
