In each village, women from different caste and religious groups come together to share health knowledge and improve their socio-economic status. The women are given training and assistance in operating various economic programs to improve their families and communities. This has a profound and long-lasting impact on the health of the people in each village. In a number of villages, the Women's clubs are more active than the Farmer's clubs as the prime movers on such things as nutrition, health and hygiene, safe drinking water, kitchen gardens, afforestation, micro-credit, and income generation. Increasingly, emphasis has been placed on women's empowerment and raising the level of self-esteem, especially among girls. Family planning and the promotion of adequate birth spacing still remain among the priority areas of CRHP. These women work closely with the VHWs whose task is to convey all relevant health and other knowledge gained at the CRHP training center to groups such as the MMs, so as to reach out to the community as a whole.
