SETU initiates in reducing all forms of inequality from the society. The organization mobilizes the poor, vulnerable and marginalized communities, most of whom live in rural areas, who are ultimately able to access to local power structure, financial services, public and private resources. They are capable of utilizing their accumulated savings in income raising schemes which contribute in improving living standard and education of their children.
SETU’s human development training empowers marginalized communities who are left behind in raising their voices, determine choices and enable them to retort criticism against them. In this way they are capable of improving their living status, thus able to stand on their own footing that impacted reducing inequalities. Beside those communities are able to participate in decision making process in their families and society, protest against deprivation, discrimination, injustices, visit markets, local union parishad, even participate in local body election process.
Awareness inequalities and large disparities in society decreased to some extent in program areas. On the other hand access to income sources, health and education increased especially in rural areas where most of the poor live.
The organization empowers and supports the lowest income earners and promotes economic inclusion of all regardless of sex, race or ethnicity. In this way SETU contributes in achieving the SDG-10.
