This brief is a part of WIEGO's documentation of Mahila Housing SEWA Trust’s (MHT) work to capture insights on their work that has had wide ranging impacts on the wellbeing and economic productivity of home-based workers. This is the first cross-sectoral case study brief which cuts across the various themes of MHT’s work.
The case study follows the journey of Meena Soni over several years, to bring about significant change in her community and her own house. With continued support from MHT, she has added water and sanitation facilities, installed efficient energy systems, and is looking to add a floor above her house. She has also grown as a woman leader in her community and has advocated for access to city public buses.
