Tamil Nadu Women in Agriculture (TANWA)

Tamil Nadu Women in Agriculture (TANWA) is a project initiated in Tamil Nadu
to train women in latest agricultural techniques. It induces women to actively
participate in raising agricultural productivity and family income. At a Farm
Women’s Group in Thiruchirapalli, run by Anthoniammal, trained women are
successfully making and selling vermicompost and earning money from this
venture. Many other Farm Women’s Groups are creating savings in their group
by functioning like mini banks through a micro-credit system. With the
accumulated savings, they promote small-scale household activities like
mushroom cultivation, soap manufacture, doll making or other incomegenerating activities.
