Lets Start a SHG- Quick Useful Tips

Friends, it’s the fifth day since I am back from NC, but my mind is still in the Hakla world of NC.

So here I am just re-sharing the pamphlet that we had distributed after our Bangalore SHG play in NC. I am also sharing a link of the official TISA SHG Facilitators Manual which has been drafted by Dr. Sachin. In short, this link is the bible for running a SHG and can help all of us to run our own SHG.

Happy to hear from you all !!!
