There is an urgent need to create mechanisms to empower widows in Yavatmal and Vidarbha, and give them the support they need to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward. However, such initiatives are rare. One of the few such projects for the welfare of the helpless women is run by Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR) and its sister organization Sampada Trust.
Socio-Economic survey and analysis is a very important aspect of any developmental activity.
WOTR has developed a very useful and easy-to-use Socio-Economic Survey and Analysis Software. This software helps to prepare demographic details, household category-wise population report, education status, land holding and cropping pattern of the village, livestock details of the village, income and expenditure of families in the village.
The information regarding every family in the village can be retrieved in any manner required. Once village information is collected and stored in this software, the software helps to analyse the changes that take place in the entire village as well as in each individual family.
