Abstract: Unacceptable levels of poverty and the gradual feminization of such poverty are the most
daunting of all our challenges. The eradication of poverty and a special focus on women in all
poverty alleviation programmes has been major strategies since seventies. Women empowerment
process is one where women find time and space of their own and begin to re-examine their lives
critically and collectively, and the aim of the Kudumbashree scheme is to improve the standard
of living of women as a Strategy for Poverty Eradication. The Kudumbashree Community based
organizations are acting as social safety nets, increasing access to entitlements and providing
avenues for political participation. This paper aims to examine the role of Kudumbashree for
improving the standard of living of member women and also to compare the service quality of
SHGs in rural and urban areas of Kottayam and Ernakulam districts and to study the initiatives
taken by SHGs to empower its members. It also focuses to understand the structure, working and
progress of Kudumbashree project in Kerala.
