Tata Power conducts programmes focused on women self-development in the villages of Maharashtra.


Tata Power recently conducted a number of initiatives for the betterment of communities in Dherand and Shahpur villages of Alibaug, Maharashtra. Women were the main focus of these initiatives.

For the past year the company has focused mainly on women empowerment and self-development among women in the villages of Dherand and Shahpur. Tata Power roped in Mahila Arthik Vikas Mahamandal (a government of Maharashtra undertaking) to provide specialised training to the SHGs on the concept, dynamics and functioning of the groups as well as the importance of bookkeeping and documentation.

The programme also included a unique Marathi street play presented by Stree Mukti Sanghatna, an NGO working for the rights of women and rag pickers. The play highlighted the problems faced by Indian women and how they can overcome them. The programme was well received by more than 250 women of the villages participating; it was the first time that the women had been exposed to such support groups.
