District Coordinator – Mohali

About SEWA Punjab:

Established by Ela Bhatt in 1972, the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) empowers poor women in India’s informal economy by equipping them with the personal confidence, community support, and practical tools necessary to fulfill their needs and exercise their rights. With over 2 million active members across 18 states, SEWA is a nationwide movement. Our work focuses on furthering informal women workers’ rights, livelihoods, financial independence, education, health, and social security.

In line with the SEWA values, SEWA Punjab aims to secure for community members the twin goals of full employment and self-reliance. SEWA Punjab began its work in 2016, in conjunction with the National Health Mission, leading a capacity-building program of Mahila Arogya Samitis (MAS) across 21 cities in 11 districts of Punjab. Since then, SEWA Punjab has been carrying out integrated development activities to uplift and empower informal women workers in 6 districts- Gurdaspur (Gurdaspur city & Batala), Ferozepur, Moga, Malerkotla, Patiala (Sanour, Patiala city & Nabha), Saketri and Mohali. Local women leaders have been elected among members and they have in turn become extensions of the SEWA unit. Various trades have been identified and women are encouraged to form trade groups to strengthen a sense of community. For further information, kindly visit our website: www.sewapunjab.org
