Abstract:
The study was carried in Heggadadevanakote taluk of Mysuru district during 2019 to assess the social capital of Soliga tribal women. Ex post facto research design was employed for the study. With respect to overall social capital status of Soliga tribal women, it was found that there was medium level social capital (50.00%) followed by high (26.67%) and low level (23.33%). Among different dimensions of social capital, groups and network got the highest mean score (17.16) followed by trust and solidarity (16.03), empowerment and action (12.10) collective action and co-operation (8.63), information and communication (3.93) and social cohesion and inclusion (3.03). It was quite interesting to note that there was high trust and solidarity among them because of medium level of mass media exposure and extension participation and regular visit of NGO. They have developed trust and solidarity among these Agencies and believe in each other. Based on the results, it can be concluded that there is a need to build social capital by addressing all the dimensions among tribal women to make them more empowered socially, economically and culturally particularly social cohesion and information communication has to be promoted among the Soliga tribal women.
