Though formally registered as an NGO in 1999, SAKHI has had a long standing presence in North Bihar as a team involved in coordinating one of the field projects of another NGO ADITHI. This project, initiated with the support of Swiss Red Cross in Andhrathari Block of Madhubani District in 1990, aimed at empowerment of fisherwomen through enabling their access to government ponds on lease, equipping them with technical and managerial skills, providing start up capital support to them and consequently contributing to a steady enhancement in their income levels. Towards this end the critical intervention got to be one of organizing the poor fisherwomen into groups and their registration as a women’s cooperative society. As a support service to these women, the components of health and education were also included with the former focusing on reproductive and child health and the latter on education of girl children in the age group of 6-14 through running of non formal education centers. The quality of work carried out in the fisherwoments community brought the project under increasing demand from other communities, particularly the dalits, for extension of similar support to their hamlets; thus obliging the organization to bring these deprived communities as well under its coverage.

In line with ADITHI’s institutional policy of registering all its long-term projects in the various districts of Bihar as independently registered organizational entities, the Andhrathari project was registered as an independent organizational entity named `SAKHI’ in the year 1999
