How Sakhis Work


Sakhis are grassroots women trained by SSP to be our foot soldiers, to bring about
social and economic change in grassroots India. As members of SSP-run women SHGs,
Sakhis assume multiple roles in a grassroots community. A Sakhi acts as the face of SSP,
the point of convergence of all SSP products and facilitator of our programs at the
ground level.
