Sustainable Livelihoods
Empowering lives

A key focus area for us is to enrich lives by creating livelihood opportunities to empower the underprivileged and improve the quality of their lives through our projects.  To date, we have succeeded in making a difference to over 80,000 lives through our sustainable livelihood initiatives.

The gift of a Jaipur foot is often the first step to independent living for many who otherwise have to go through life with a disadvantage. Our association with the Jaipur Foot has helped us to provide over 13,000 differently-abled individuals an opportunity to lead a productive life.

Our project in Nashik, Maharashtra focused on enhancing the employability of youth. Over 3200 youth were trained through our NGO partner Kherwadi Social Welfare Association in various vocational skills such as basics of computers, mobile repairing, tailoring, grooming, nursing and personality development. All these efforts resulted in a workforce of youth who were ready for employment.

Our project in Rayagada, Orissa was implemented through our NGO partner - Professional Assistance for Development Action (PRADAN). The focus of the project was to build income generating potential to supplement the meager and limited means of living of the tribal. We introduced initiatives that built their capacity to adopt improved technologies in farming and other allied activities with the help of Integrated Natural Resource Management. The activities included land leveling, building farm ponds, small earthen check dams, constructing ring wells and encouraging horticulture. Through our efforts in creating new avenues of income generation we have improved the lives of over 2,000 tribal families.
