Community Development Division (CDD)

While educating the girls in the school, we realized the need to work alongside the mothers and aunts of the girls, so they have continuous support at home for completing their education and also to make the women changemakers of tomorrow. With this goal, PPES has established the CDD and working towards livelihood generation and income enhancement activities through facilitating the formation and strengthening of community-led institution Self-Help Groups (SHGs); creation of micro-enterprises and entrepreneurs, imparting the best farming practices; health and hygiene training; facilitating inter-loaning amongst the groups, Credit Linkages with the Financial Institutions to fulfill the credit needs; convergence with government schemes & programs.

CDD Current Outreach

CDD is working with 10,400 SHG women in partnership with UP State Rural Livelihood Mission (UPSRLM) in 3 different Development blocks (Anupshahr, Dibai & Dannpur) of Bulandshar District.

Institution Structure

With the value of collectiveness and togetherness, the institution platform is a three-tier structure starting with Self Help Groups (SHGs) at the grassroots level, which merged into the Village Organizations (VOs) and eventually came together to form Federations at the block level.
