Namrata Bali, Director of SEWA Academy, likened the SEWA family of organizations to a banyan tree with many branches and roots, each root with the potential of becoming an independent tree. She explained that SEWA is a confluence of the labor, women's and cooperative movements, organizing women in the informal economy through the strategy of struggle and development towards its two main goals: full employment and self-reliance.
She explained that SEWA uses an integrated and need-based approach to organizing, combining capacity building, capital formation and social security all together, not one after the other.
Namrata described three main membership-based organizations within the SEWA family.
As summarized by Namrata Bali in the concluding session, a membership-based organization of the poor (MBOP) in the context of SEWA is run, managed, and owned by the workers. An MBOP is distinct from an MBO in that the former are "controlled by and accountable to, and seek to fulfill the objectives of poor members."
An MBOP runs on the following principles:democracy, transparency, solidarity, collective benefit , independence, control by the members, voluntary membership, collectively agreed objectives and decision-making structures , and financial or kind contribution
The objectives of an MBOP, as explained by Namrata, are also quite specific.
In the beginning of session, Ms. Namrata Bali, the managing Director of SEWA Academy, gave briefing on SEWA and on the Exposure Dialogue methodology to the participants.
