GMO is a grassroots organization and not a migratory NGO.
Its members have stakes in local communities.
A rural women’s forum for advocating gender-sensitive policies
A forum for monitoring government assurances and
promises on programmes and specific issues related to rural women
WHO WE ARE
We empower women with productive economic assets and sustainable sources of income in order to strengthen their food security; concretion their identity in the family and equip them with capacities to take initiative to address problems and issues relating to gender inequality. GMO is a rural poor women’s organisation located in Kolar, District of Karnataka state in India. For more than two decades, GMO functioned as apex federation of SHGs in Kolar District. At present, GMO works 50 villages in three blocks in Kolar District and works in another 4 districts in Karnataka, in partnering with other federations.
WHAT WE DO
GMO organizes groups of rural women in villages with objective of raising their consciousness about their rights as individuals and as gender, and empower them as stakeholders in social and economic development programs that benefit entire communities ranging from livelihood enhancement projects, improved healthcare, education, water and sanitation, and participation in local governance. The GMO groups have been in therefore front of combating violence against women (VAW) in their villages. Of late, GMO has begun educating young girls about their rights and empowerment.
“We can’t be so revolutionary in the beginning. We have to accept certain things. Whatever they say, we have to listen. No social or Economic security programme can be a success unless it takes into account the special needs of women.”
