The holistic empowerment of the poor self employed women within the co-operative structure

18 years ago, Gujarat State Women's SEWA Co-operative Federation came into being with just 3 people on board. We have managed to steer the boat from 33 co-operatives at the time of its inception to 103 co-operatives today.

Promoted by SEWA; it is the first women's co-operative Federation in India. A member based organization; it is unique and encompasses diverse economic activities.

In this prevailing era of globalization, the mission of the Federation is to empower self-employed women within the co-operative structure; making them independent to be part of the mainstream; access technology; understand markets and techniques and in turn become self-reliant mangers.

My appreciation to all those who have been with the Federation in its eventful and illustrious journey over the past decades.
