The Grihini vision is that women from poor rural villages of the remote Palni Hills will engage in an educational experience and return to their villages with

 A sense of self-esteem and empowerment

 A sense of personal worth, potential and humanity

 Enhanced social literacy to understand what it is that contributes to their social marginalisation and poverty

 A consciousness of justice and human rights

 Improved literacy and numeracy

 A capacity to save and handle money responsibly

 The skills to generate an independent income

 An awareness of the value of women’s support networks

 A knowledge of the support programs offered by their government and the skills to access them

 The motivation to become agents of change in the village

 An understanding of how to improve village health

 The ability to handle public opposition to social change
