CORO

Empowering Women

Empowering women from marginalised, low-income communities to act against violence and to work together in entrepreneurship.​

How MMF works

Mahila Mandal Federation​ (MMF) – a self-dependent organisation initiated and nurtured by CORO – respresents the voice of marginalised women. MMF conducts baseline surveys, develops strategies and activities including women's Self-help groups and campaigns to combat Violence Against Women and Girls.

Baseline surveys are carried out to understand the demographic profile and assess the socio-economic situation of women –particularly focusing the VAWG, health and economic conditions.​

Self-help groups are formed to empower women to generate income for themselves. The groups develop women’s capacity and capability to lead as well as providing training in business activities such as tailoring and catering .​

Communication and awareness building campaigns including capacity building of volunteers and formation of Community Case Registration Centres (CRC).​ Run from the homes of our women leaders, the Centres oversee 250 surrounding households. Community members come there for advice and guidance in domestic issues, and our CRC’s are trained to provide counselling and file police reports.
