What We Do

For over 6 years, we have been working in partnership with rural communities not only to improve their material well-being but also to build more resilient communities. Our initial emphasis was on empowering women through self-governed institutions. However, over a period of time, we have expanded our interventions to address the multi-dimensional aspects of poverty and unequal distribution of wealth in society. Today, our programmatic interventions rest on Five Pillars - Women's Empowerment, Rural Livelihoods, Education & Skills, Rural Healthcare, Youth Development, and Natural Resource Management. Working across these themes enables us to make a significant contribution toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Interventions

Our thematic programs are designed to improve the living conditions of village communities and strive to make villages a better place to live. Our strategic interventions include vibrant women's institutions for fostering gender equality, sustainable livelihoods, climate action, quality education, rural health, youth development, and promotion of women-led micro-enterprises.

What People Say About Us

'Manjari’ literally translates to “seed of Tulsi”, a sacred Indian plant. When women mobilise themselves to form institutions, they are empowered to sow their own ‘seeds of change’.
