Rajiv Gandhi Mahila Vikas Pariyojana (RGMVP) is a rights-based organisation that works for poverty reduction, women’s empowerment and rural development in Uttar Pradesh. With the belief that the poor have a strong desire and innate ability to overcome poverty, RGMVP organises poor rural women into community institutions in the form of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) - each consisting of 10-20 women -- that act as social platforms to address issues of financial inclusion, healthcare, livelihoods, education and the environment.
