Gender inequality, poverty, and poor education are some of the world’s most pressing issues, according to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We have teamed up with the Swedish organization Hand in Hand to help women get equal rights to education, thrive to their fullest potential, and pave their own way out of poverty.
Being economically independent is still a luxury for many women around the globe. Providing not only for themselves, but their families is a substantial challenge that many women face every day. To make a difference in their lives, we are proud to be engaged in a village upliftment program in Kothidal-Kalakudi Panchayat, India, empowering the local women to start their own businesses and kick-start their journey towards economic independence.
Empowering female entrepreneurs in India.
We are thrilled to receive reports that since our involvement began there has been a progressive change which has laid the path for a better quality of life for the participating women. Before Hand in Hand, many women in the village had restricted access to the help and tools they needed. The support now being implemented for the women helps create sustainable outcomes, resulting in positive long-term benefits for the individuals, their families, and the greater community.
