Description: "Employment generation for themselves through Organisation is only one of the objectives of the Samitis. This was a critical need of the women and therefore received the priority. But the Samitis have other committed objectives and other broader objectives. To fulfill these objectives, the CWDS feels that frequent education through group discussion, rural camps, inter-group visits are necessary. This process is also expected to strengthen their perception about their economic independence, values of collective strength and to weaken the sources of intra-familial and intra-community oppression."
