Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog was launched under the Shrimad Rajchandra Women Empowerment Programme to empower rural women by providing them with employment opportunities leading to social acceptance and financial independence.

A woman plays a pivotal role in her family and society at large. Therefore, her upliftment is the cornerstone for any significant development of society. However, discrimination is rife in rural Indian society. Underprivileged women of India are subjected to poverty, low education and poor health. The challenges for women who are widowed at a young age are especially daunting, as these women not only have to take care of their families, but earn a livelihood as well. In the backdrop of lack of formal education and requisite skills, a need was felt to help these women earn an honest living, which would harness their existing skillsets and provide livelihood support.

Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog has made significant strides in making many women self-reliant. In order to provide stimulus to their aspirations, we expanded their workplace to include an enhanced kitchen area along with a work and storage area to support the rapid growth of this project.

We also encourage the overall development of the women of our Mahila Gruha Udyog by conducting the following activities:

  • Participation in exhibitions and NGO events to showcase the product range
  • Team bonding activities like educational and spiritual trips, games, etc
  • Development support of new products for expanding the product offering

Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog (SRMGU) helps rural woman achieve her entrepreneurial dream!

Hemalatta, a 29 year old woman from rural Gujarat, is a successful entrepreneur who currently runs her own catering business along with her husband. Just a few years ago, this was a far-away dream for her, and in order to make it a reality, she enrolled in the Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog (SRMGU), where rural women are trained in various crafts and get access to employment opportunities.

Hemalatta was trained in mini-khakra production and packaging, and over time, she also learned how to make several other snacks. During her training at SRMGU, Hemalatta and her husband, Sanjiv, began serving the snacks produced at MGU at the cafeteria of Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth (SRV). Through this experience and her training at MGU, Hemalatta learned several life skills and grew in self-confidence. Soon, she and her husband decided to start an independent catering service. Today, they cook food at their home and provide catering service in the SRV canteen!

Hemalatta worked with extreme dedication and passion to make her dreams come true, and is an inspiring role model for rural women!






“I came to know about Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog from my village women folk and the personal development that these ladies had experienced working there. Knowing this, I was inspired to join this initiative and began working here. The best aspect of Shrimad Rajchandra Mahila Gruha Udyog is that they imparted training to me to ensure I learnt the process well and once I was well versed with it, they ensure continuous growth and development. Working at this project since 4 years, I can say that it has helped in the progress of my entire family, consisting of my husband and three children."
