Social Security Programme
Officials of Central Board for Workers Education, Govt. of India, with the assistance of Jagaran, conducted a programme for educating unorganised women workers belonging to the vulnerable sections in the rural and urban areas about social security measures and different government programmes to make them self-reliant. CBWE also organised camps with our assistance to enlist the unorganised workers for economic assistance. Every participant was paid token financial assistance to participate in the two days awareness camp.
Jagaran beliefs in the need to build awareness amongst women to avail the benefits of Social securities from the Government. Social security measures about Transport workers were undertaken. This also involves building the capacities of poor rural women to raise their voice and take a collective action.

Leadership is very important in developing group activities. It facilitates direction, credibility, accountability, integrity and co-operation. Leaders should have the ability to listen, achieve targets, coordinating efforts, good liaison and overall motivation towards action. As it is a Joint liability Group, the role of leaders is very important to strengthen unity. A leader has to take care to translate the activities to achieve the goal of economic empowerment. As the target groups belong to the underprivileged section of the communities, periodical training was provided. Jagaran is committed to developing leadership quality among the borrowers which paves the way to increase cohesiveness among the Group members and it also paves the way for empowerment.
