Who We Are
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since 1981, Mahiti is a rural development organization based at grass root level (Dholera village). In 1994, it was formally registered under Gujarat Societies Act 1860 and Bombay Public Charitable Trust Act 1950.
 
Mahiti works in the most difficult area of “Bhal region” which consists of coastal area of Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Surendranagar, and Anand district of Gujarat State, India. In Gujarati language “Bhal” means “forehead” where nothing grows. Bhal is a region where salinity ingress is very high, the land is very saline, the ground water is saline and has no irrigation facilities. This area also has a very strong caste system and is still dominated by the culture of feudalism.
 
Mahiti focuses on mobilizing and organizing the poor, discriminated and marginalized communities in accessing their rights and development through empowerment and human rights based approach. Since inception, Mahiti works for the rights of specific social groups called Dalits (Scheduled Caste) and Talapada Kolis (Other Backward Caste) with focus on Women.
 
Mahiti has sought to improve the quality of life of vulnerable, exploited and marginalized families – with a special emphasis on women, children and the poor – residing in the region of Western Gujarat. We recognize the need for an integrated approach to development and consequently our activities are diverse.
 
Our activities include formation, nurturing and strengthening community based village level institutions, strengthening micro finance institutions, community health, hygiene and sanitation, soil and water conservation, the development of watersheds, women empowerment, youth empowerment, social justice, policy advocacy and disaster management.
