CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION AND DESIGN OF STUDY
INTRODUCTIONKudumbasree, the poverty eradication mission of the state of Kerala is a community based self help initiative involving poor women. It has been envisaged as an approach to poverty alleviation focusing primarily on micro finance and micro-enterprise development, and integrally linked to local self-government institutions. National Bank of Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) initiated women Self Help Groups (SHGs) in India with the support of local NGOs. The formation of SHGs led to the implementation of Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY), launched by the Ministry of Rural Development. In a similar line Kudumbashree is sponsored by local self-government institutions in Kerala. Though local government institutions are not organically linked to Kudumbashree, they are active partners in the programme. Under Kudumbashree, women have organized themselves under a three tier community based organization. The bottom of the KDMS programme is formed by the Neighborhood Groups (NHGs) comprising of 20-40 women members selected from poor families. Area Development Society (ADS) is formed at the level of ward of local government by federating 8-10 NHGs. The Community Development Society (CDS) formed at the village panchayat level or at the municipality (town) or corporation (city) is a federation of ADSs. CDS, the highest tier, is the federation of all the ADSs in the respective panchayat (rural) or municipality (town) or corporation (city).The KDMS system works in close association with both the urban and rural local governments through a network of Community Based Organizations working with women.
As on March 2008, KDMS has covered 36,53,655 families through 1,85,309 NHGs, 16,950 ADSs and 1058 CDSs. It also plays an important role as a nodal agency for anti-poverty programmes sponsored by central, state and local governments with focus on micro enterprise development. It has become a conduit for a variety of government programmes. This poor women-oriented self help group programme strives to tackle poverty in an integrated manner through an effective convergence of resources and actions. Micro finance, especially provision of thrift and credit services using bank linkage appears to have proved its viability. Thrift and Credit activities at the level of NHGs promote saving habit among the poor and help them access loans for both consumption and investment purposes. These Thrift and Credit Societies play a significant role in channelising rural savings for the poverty eradication programme of Kudumbashree. It has developed training modules for micro- enterprise management and conducted several training programmes. Kudumbashree mission is implementing the projects for the destitute. Various development activities in the state of Kerala are being brought together through the group dynamics developed under the Kudumbashree programme. This has resulted in convergence of resources leading to poverty reduction (Jose, 2006).
It is significant to examine the functioning of KDMS programme in the state of Kerala which has caught the attention world-wide, due to high social and equitable development in the backdrop of limited economic growth. Kerala, despite having a relatively low GNP, has achieved life expectancies comparable to industrially advanced countries. Among various Indian states it has an impressive Human Development Index (HDI).
OBJECTIVES OF STUDY To study the role of Kudumbasree in empowering the women. To know how the Kudumbasree units functioning and processing. To find out the various programs and campaigns conducted by Kudumbasree units. To understand how the Kudumbasree units marketing their products. Identify major problems being faced by Kudumbasree units, especially related to production and marketing.
Critically examine the role of local government institutions and financialinstitutions in the Kudumbasree units.
METHODOLOGYBoth primary and secondary datas were used for the study. Primary data collected by direct interview with the Kudumbasree units. Questionnaires were used for the study. Members of 6 kudumbasree units were interviewed.
Secondary data collected from the records of kudumbasree units and kudumbasree articles, and the web-sites of Kudumbasree.
LIMITATIONS OF STUDY Kudumbasree units are not much active in the study area, i.e. Pathanamthitta, so these six units were selected from a wide search. Some of the members were not much aware about project. So I had to explain about the significance of the project and also about the course MBA. The members didnt have much time to spend with me, because they were busy with their jobs.
