The Sri Sri Rural Development Project (SSRDP) was established in 2001. Since its inception, it has initiated numerous projects in India to empower rural women.
The project offers a comprehensive four-month training program and consequently offers employment to the women.
It places special emphasis on self-development and education.
The women of SSRDP have undertaken several innovative projects such as manufacturing of incense sticks, tailoring, embroidery, and manufacturing jute products. These products are then sold in India and abroad and the funds are used to support the program.
