Sampark works towards enhancing the voice of women, with the philosophy that all women, men and children have the basic human rights to dignity and self-determination, and that all people should have the opportunity and choice to enhance their own potential and well-being.
Self reliant credit cooperatives of rural women manage the day to day functioning as well as governance activities on their own, with capacity building support from Sampark. They have nearly 7,000 members across 60 villages who deposit savings and avail credit for income generating activities. The cooperatives have the capacity to liaise with local governance structures to avail support. The other women are in completely independent SHGs that are able to link to government programmes and avail credit and other forms of support.
The women are trained to run their own Self Help groups, and manage their accounts. They are encouraged to be more confident, mobile , and attend training on a variety of topics such as health and hygiene, leadership and gender.
The knowledge and research activities are undertaken by the Sampark Livelihoods Promotion Trust (SLPT) which is a separate organization with research in development goals.
