Saksham’s vision is to ensure the physical, economical and social rehabilitation of beneficiaries, to enable them to regain their mobility, dignity, and become self-empowered.
At national and global levels, women’s voices are weak, largely because of their minimal presence in leadership roles of rural organizations, the challenges of being treated as ‘token’ women rather than equally with male leaders and, in some cases, the limited ability of the few women leaders at the national level to effectively represent the needs of women at the grass-roots level. There is also a difference between women’s representation in women-only groups and mixed-sex groups. Women’s groups tend to be confined to the local level, often organized around economic activities. This demands an urgent need to empower women economically for the welfare of women as well as a community at large.
Since early 1990, the valley of Kashmir1 in the north Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir has been the site of a vicious conflict between Indian security forces and Muslim insurgents demanding independence or accession to Pakistan.

KarmaKonnect will partner with Aakar Innovations to set up sanitary pad mini factory in Marriguda, Telangana, that will employ local women to manufacture and distribute bio-degradable, low-cost sanitary napkins. The solution will endeavor to break the silence around the issue of Menstrual Hygiene and provide knowledge and guidance to all stakeholders, especially adolescent girls. The idea is that something as natural as Menstruation does not become a thing of shame, adolescent girls have access to pads, know how to use and dispose them, while the community and institutional systems are sensitized and support them in this process. The eco-system will be created using ICT (Information Communication Technology) and Sports, so that they can come out of the four walls to discuss about MHM (Menstrual Hygiene Management) openly.
Deep inside the valleys of Chambal are villages that are not accessible by road, deprived of development as we know it. Water from nearby streams, kerosene powered lanterns, open riverfront for sanitary needs and child marriages are a norm. All they need is handholding and a little push from nearby urban areas.
Electricity is still a distant dream for villages in India. Villages that are located in remote areas tend to be ignored as basic amenities do not reach to them.
