Mobilizing Community for participatory action, institution building


Grameen Sahara is a Not-for-Profit Organization which from its very inception has been engaged itself in promotion and strengthening of sustainable livelihoods.

As on date Grameen Sahara has been working with 60500 poor and disadvantaged families from Assam and Meghalaya. It was registered as a society under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 in the year 2002.
The issues and concerns of NE India have been very different from that of other regions of India. The need for a development institution having grass root knowledge of the region was felt which can contribute in the promotion of livelihoods for the poor by providing financial services, technical assistance and other required development support services in an integrated manner.


We as an organization understand the challenges to smoothen and roll the wheel of development. We have our strength to make the efforts work and progress. Our interventions have touched the lives of 2.5 lakh people. Grameen Sahara implements programme and projects with objectives to promote sustainable livelihood within rural and semi urban communities who are deprived of and lack access to development services. It is realised that rural and semi urban areas are facing problems with their livelihood leveraging activities due to pressure of limited financial resources, physical resources, lack of technical infusion to commensurate with the aspiration. Hence there has been a shift of people’s interest in terms of income generating activities. It was deeply felt to provide these underserved sections of the society with both technical and financial support to enhance the income requirements of their households but without compromising the health and sustainability of the environment and has initiated several interventions for the same which are explained here in this report. The organization has been supported by various government and private donor agencies, banks, corporations, foundations and multilateral organizations.
