Nirma legal aid program students bring NABARD support to local village

Nirma University’s law school students brought India’s apex rural development organisation NABARD’s and the Ajeet Rural Development Foundation’s (ARDF) support to 20 women in a village in Ahmedabad.

The students have been working in the village - Jamiyatpura for a long time, according to the press release by Nirma, which added:

This year, however, the institute has achieved a new benchmark in the work they are doing. A group of 11 students working towards women empowerment, with the National Social Service Unit of the Institute and the Legal Aid Committee were successful in bringing the support of NABARD and the NGO, AjeetRural Development Foundation.

ARDF was founded by Ishwar Dodiya to help residents of rural areas in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar in forming self help groups and water shed programs.

According to Nirma’s release:

On 9 April 2018, Dodiya visited the village, and spoke to a group of 20 women about the need for self- dependency and the importance and support of self-help groups for the same. He convinced the women to come together in a group and promised to help them further in laying down the policies for the group, conduct meetings, help the women earn their livelihood and continue to help the women till they are self-sufficient.
