Samaj Pragati Sahayog
We are a grass-roots initiative that works with our partners on a million acres of land across 72 of India’s most backward districts, mainly in the central Indian Adivasi belt. We work in the drought-prone, tribal areas of Madhya Pradesh, which typifies few of the most difficult problems facing the country. Characterised by low incomes, high poverty, poor human development indicators like female literacy and infant mortality rates, the tribal communities of the region are highly vulnerable to climate variability and climate change.

Over the last three decades, Samaj Pragati Sahayog (SPS) has grown to be one of India’s largest grass-roots initiatives for water and livelihood security, working with its partners on a million acres of land across 72 of India’s most backward districts, mainly in the central Indian Adivasi belt.
In view of this crisis, Samaj Pragati Sahayog (SPS) provided assistance worth around Rs. 1000 to 13,044 carefully identified the most vulnerable families in some of its areas of direct operation (Dewas and Khargone districts, MP) to help the families meet their basic needs and maintain personal hygiene. Each one of these families is very well known to us and each of them has bank accounts. Community institutions (SHGs and SHG Federations of women) facilitated by SPS in the area played a central role in the preparation of the list of most vulnerable families and in the delivery of the kit of essentials.
