Action of Women In Development - AWID
ACTION OF WOMEN IN DEVELOPMENT-AWID, is a non-profit and non-political women headed organisation NGO based at Ukhrul District Headquarter working with the community in general and with women in particular at grass-root level for food & livelihood security and women in governance.
This SRI pilot phase started in 2009 with 20 farmers in our district in an average of 1 acre each. The number of SRI farmers kept increasing year by year, and hence in 2014-2015, SRI was promoted in 12 villages to 580 farmers, and increased food security of the farmers as they harvested increased yield of paddy.
AWID had been working as one of the seven network members of WinG- Manipur, since 2009.
