Barli Development Institute for Women

Barli Development Institute for Women by Janak Palta McGilligan

Rural and tribal women in India continue to struggle against poverty and discrimination and their ramifications. The Barli Development Institute for Rural Women, a Baha'i-inspired project, has been working for over 25 years to empower young rural women in India for the betterment of their communities. The transformation of these women from victims of discrimination to positive agents of social change is the theme of this book.

The author, director of the Institute until her retirement in 2011, examines how applying Baha'i principles has facilitated the process of sustainable community development in one of India's poorest states, Madhya Pradesh.
