Project 72 has brought in its fold 6,000 women from the area; it is indeed a remarkable achievement. There was clear evidence prior to Project 72 women’s participation was minimum in the community development programs. There were no social activities or interaction among the women community. Therefore the main objective was to mobilize the resources and to involve the women in the community development programs.
It was clear from the research that the women of Ahmednagar were hardworking but lacked education and awareness about the various welfare schemes of the government. Project 72 through its different programs escalated women’s participation to a remarkable height.
