    Women are the real architects of society. Marine fisher folk are members of a low and disadvantaged caste belonging to the lowest economic strata in Indian society. The fisherwomen, in particular, have a very low status in the social hierarchy which leaves them worse off than their compatriots. Even though women have made great strides, a gender gap still exists. SAF, under the Theeramythri program provides continued handholding and mentoring to the micro enterprises and livelihood ventures that were established under the earlier Tsunami rehabilitation programs. SAF activity groups have emerged as a new model in catering socioeconomic empowerment of fisherwomen by providing sustained livelihood security to the fisherwomen. The outcome is marked by rapid change in the women empowerment levels and an upheaval in the society. Policy decisions based on research findings are rooted in ground reality, and therefore have the capacity to bring about tangible improvement among the fisherwomen community. As research is a vital input for development planners and administrators, there was a keen interest to look out for social factors which have the potential to impact the outcomes of various programmes among the fisherwomen community. With this aim in view, the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) is engaged in the process of collecting and analyzing the data and documenting valuable research findings in the areas of social development of the fisherwomen. The report also underlines the vital role for re-visualizing the vision of SAF that can play an active role in amplifying the organization’s roles and responsibilities and broadening their views and aspirations. The vision document draws in numerous policy elements which could be taken as action plans and its implementation will lead to the successful working of the activity groups.
