About Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP)
Founded by Ms. Prema Gopalan, SSP works towards promoting empowerment of women as leaders and entrepreneurs through self-help groups, social enterprises and community led initiatives. SSP targets women farmers in small farm households and equips them with the knowledge and skill sets to utilize small portions of their family’s land to practice nutrition sensitive farming that provides much needed nutritious food crops for the family. These women are also trained in sustainable farming practices and water conservation to make the most out of their land.
GECSRF funds are helping SSP to create livelihoods for 5000 women across 50 villages in Latur and Osmanabad in Maharashtra in addition to sustainable solutions to drought and allied issues.
