Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken in Bhagalpur district of Bihar State to examine constraints faced by NGOs in empowering the rural women. It has been endeavoured to find out what and how the NGOs go through in their drive towards empowering the rural women. Empowerment of women has been conceptualized as creating in the rural women the capacity and ability to be economically productive and socially capable so as to fit and suit in the society fully as well as compete favourably with men in different aspects of life. A multi-stage random sampling technique was used in selecting 10 NGOs from Bhagalpur district of Bihar State. Data were collected with the use of structured interview schedule. Frequency counts, percentage and mean score were used in analysing the data. Findings indicated that the major constraints faced by the NGOs in exercising their role of empowering rural women were grants not released in time (90.0%), insufficient allocation of fund (80.0%), difficulty in getting full time volunteers (80%), non- availability of fund for the desired activity (80.0%), Government’s unawareness about difficulties of NGOs (80.0%), difficulty in getting qualified workers (70.0%) and Government’s indifference to problems of the NGOs.
