The study was an attempt to evaluate the role of non-governmental organizations in women empowerment of Chhattisgarh State. The present study was conducted in Chhattisgarh state in the year 2020-21. Three districts namely Bilaspur, Durg and Raipur were purposively selected for the study looking to the maximum number of NGOs working in these districts for women empowerment. For the study purpose, proportionately a total of 20 NGOs were selected. 240 women beneficiaries from these NGOs were randomly selected. The results revealed that the NGOs under study are effective in generating additional employment days, additional income and assets over a period of time as the women beneficiaries were undertaking the income generating activity successfully. There was a considerable difference in the beneficiaries' employment, income, and assets before and after joining the NGO activity. The government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) can collaborate to improve the lives of women in distress in Chhattisgarh and other Indian states.
