The primary focus of CARMDAKSH is to empower the women in its intervention area. This it has done through formation of Self Help groups of women..
These SHGs were later linked with financial institutions to meet their credit needs. The members have approached the Banks and dealt with the processes on their own.
The SHGs have been brought together under a federation. The idea has been to enable the SHGs to deal with issues and problems they consider important.
The federation has taken up the issue of midday meal, alcoholism, nominating women to contest panchayat election and pointing out the problems in the functioning of the PDS
