Vibhavari has been working on sustainable livelihood models, which could easily be adopted by the locals based on their skills and locally available resources.
Formation and training of self-help groups is a continuous activity to bring benefits of various government schemes to extremely poor, landless, and widowed females. These include benefits from different insurance schemes like ‘Prime Minster Jeevan Jyoti Yojna,’ ‘Prime Minister Suraksha Beema Yojna,’ ‘Sukanya Samriddhi Yojna,’ and ‘Atal Pension Yojna.’ Alongside these, coordination with various departments to get benefits of different schemes available with them to these females is also done; such as ‘Poshan Vatika’ from Department of Horticulture, Poultry Farming Assistance from ‘Aatma Pariyojna,’ and financial help to set up employment measures from State Employment Mission. The females associated with these self-help groups are also trained on financial, literacy, and health matters.
It is an innovative model to decrease mortality in goats by availing primary treatment services at village level and make goat rearing a sustainable livelihood activity.

These trained Pashu Sakhis are working successfully covering 50 villages of Sehore district in MP. It is a self-sustainable employment generation model. Pashu Sakhis are providing their skills to the goat rearers and earning 2500 to 3200/- per month.
