Where we work

Samhita began operations in 2007 in Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh, the deeply forested and tribal state in the heart of India. Today, Samhita works in 22 districts of Madhya Pradesh, and 6 districts each of neighboring states Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Madhya Pradesh is a sparsely populated state with many remote communities. The State has population density of 236 per sq. km. (as against the national average of 368, or 1,102 for Bihar). Combined with the tough terrain we operate in, this makes it very expensive to serve the region, and calls for innovation in service delivery methodologies, product design and use of technology.
