Over the last two decades, Samaj Pragati Sahayog (SPS) has grown to be one of India’s
largest grass-roots initiatives for water and livelihood security, working with its partners on a million acres of land across 72 of India’s most backward districts, mainly in the central Indian Adivasi belt. SPS takes inspiration from the life and work of Baba Amte (our Pramukh Sahayogi) who rejected charity and successfully empowered even the most challenged.

SPS is headquartered in a drought-prone, tribal area in the Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh, which typifies the most difficult problems of the country. It concentrates its direct interventions in about 220 villages and towns of this area. To facilitate this mutual learning, in 1998, SPS set up the Baba Amte Centre for People’s Empowerment in tribal village Neemkheda, where its watershed work began in the early 1990s. SPS's central mandate is the empowerment of India’s most disadvantaged people – women, Adivasis, Dalits and the poor, which SPS believes contributes to strengthening our fragile democracy at the grass-roots.
