THP in BIHAR

After the Panchayat Elections in 2001, THP organized a workshop with EWRs and Civil Society Organizations in Bihar. THP then started working on Strengthening Women’s Leadership through a 5-day module which comprised of Women’s Leadership Workshop of 3 days and Panchayati Raj Institution Technical Input of 2 days. From 2005-06, THP started following the Five-Year Cycle Plan to strengthen women leadership.

As a breakthrough, THP has been successful in not letting the Two Child Norm implemented in Panchayats. This was the first time that an issue was advocated before its implementation and a stay over it was successfully achieved.

Another breakthrough has been the Block Level Federation of EWRs, the first of its kind in Bihar. So far, 15 such Federations of EWRs are being facilitated by THP in the state.
