Self-Help Group Approach

“The SHG Approach is a rights-based approach which views poverty as the denial of rights and poverty alleviation as a process of reclaiming one’s rights.”

The SHG Approach is based on two basic principles: Every human being has potential that the poor cannot unleash in their living environment. And as individuals the poor are voiceless, powerless and vulnerable. By bringing them together in SHGs they gain the strength to claim their rights.
