Event Details

Seeing is Believing

How women's Self Reliant Groups (SRGs) are changing things in our poorest commuities.

Deprived Communities: No aspirations?

No skills? No confidence? We’ll let you decide.

 

Since February 2011, based on a model from India, women in some of the poorest communities in Glasgow have been working away in Self-Reliant Groups (SRGs), relying solely on themselves and each other, and making a unique economic contribution in ways that have enabled them to take control of their lives and make real change happen. SRGs and its ethos have a significant potential to transform the health and socio-economic landscape of Scotland.

 

Come and see. Seeing is Believing.


Speakers:

> Stories from women in SRGs in Glasgow

> Aloysius Fernandes, MYRADA (Pioneering NGO for SRGs in India)

> Cam Donaldson, Yunus Centre for Social Business & Health, GCU

 

Passage from India is supported by the Church of Scotland Priority Areas Committe and the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, GCU.

Passage from India

Passage from India (PfI) started in January 2011 and is inspired by the extraordinary success of the women-led self-help group (SHG) model in India built , where SHGs are currently enabling some 40 million women in poverty – and their families – to improve their quality of life.

Through PfI, we want to enable groups of women from Scotland’s very poorest neighbourhoods to come together locally on the principles of mutual help, solidarity and collective resilience; become enterprising collectively and develop sustainable microbusinesses so that they can lift themselves, their families and – long-term – the communities in which they live out of repeating cycles of poverty.

PfI is for women, who while being poor, do not suffer from a poverty of aspiration or poverty of talent and skills; it’s for women who are determined and aspire for change and a better life and no longer wait for someone else to do it for them: they do it themselves.
