The Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP) is a women-led, climate resilient agro-ecological farming model that focuses on land and soil restoration, livelihood security enhancement and women farmers’ empowerment. In particular, this organization focuses on women living in farmer households and mainstreams them as agents of sustainable farming. This model encourages these women to gain cultivation rights from their families, cultivate the land and sell its produce.
Swayam Shikshan Prayog empowers grassroots women’s collectives to move from “Margin to Mainstream”. Over two decades, we have built robust partnership eco-systems that enable women’s entrepreneurship and leadership in sustainable development. Climate resilience farming model repositions women as farmers and bearers of the knowledge, enabling them to make informed decisions related to what to grow, what to consume and how much to sell.
