Basic Information about the initiative
Gramya and Pilupu, both the organisations work in Nalgonda which is a drought prone backward district in Telangana and work with tribal and backward communities. The two organizations are selected for the programme since each has expertise in their respective areas which can be shared to strengthen the programme significantly. Gramya started its interventions in Nalgonda District since 1997. They have been working towards promoting a gender just society with a strategy to work with marginalized communities. The aim is to campaign and advocate to bring about structural change in society and to promote pro-people legislations. Gramya and its Board Members have been working to promote women's rights for more than 3 decades. It is also able to influence public policy from the local to the international level through participation in the womenﾒs movement. Gramya has integrated its CBOs into the government IKP programme.
