Livelihoods and Entrepreneurship

Our Livelihoods and Entrepreneurship programs develop life skills of communities and empower them in overcoming social, economic and environmental challenges.
Since there is an acute crunch of skilled workforce and abject poverty is a reality in our country, we decided to focus strongly on building livelihoods, which will in turn empower individuals to gain financial independence in the long run.
In 2017-18, through our implementation partners we enabled 3,633 people to boost their employability skills. They have either gained meaningful employment or have turned out to be entrepreneurs.

Our Livelihoods focused programs
