Local Partners

Samarthan was established in 1995 as a support organisation in undivided Madhya Pradesh to address the challenges of poverty and underdevelopment through strengthening the grassroots civil society. The primary mission of Samarthan was to promote participatory development processes by challenging the conventional top down model of development. It was believed that small and medium size voluntary organization and well meaning individuals willing to work as voluntary organizations at the grassroots will transform the development paradigm from the poor and disadvantaged sections.  Samarthan started working on building a strong base of the value based voluntary sector in undivided Madhya Pradesh. Today, we have a large network of grassroots groups (NGOs/CBOs) to demonstrate examples of participatory governance as well as to amplify voices of the poor, dalits, tribals and women in policy-making platforms.
