In Chhattisgarh, women are the major agricultural workers. This is so in the production of rice our main food crop, as well as in pulses, millets, and the many oilseeds. They work in each aspect of crop production, preservation, and storage. Women also play a major role in the collection and processing of the many kinds of uncultivated foods and medicinal plants found in Chhattisgarh.
Despite all this work they are vulnerable members of our society facing several problems such as violence, inequality, etc. To make our surrounding equally healthy for women Chhattisgarh Agricon Samiti works with SHGs, & other women centric groups.
We have done Institutionalization of 5000 women in SHG, 23000 farmers in FPO, Farmers Federation and Small working group. We even work for Mental health of Women.
