IN INDIA

We believe in building deep connections so that our partners can build their capacity to support local NGOs. Alongside our development projects in India, we also facilitate a network of our project partners to promote shared learning and leadership development.

As of March 2019, we have seven partners across four States, divided across two networks of partner NGOs: one for our partners in West Bengal and Bihar in the North East, and one for those in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the South East.

These networks gather a few times a year to support each other and share their learnings, headed by our network leaders.

PARTNER PROJECTS IN INDIA

EDUCATR

EDUCATR delivers vocational training to women, equipping them with computer skills to improve their income opportunities.

HNC

HNC trains women in making and marketing biodegradable leaf plates from local materials.

CARD

This project supports 15-17 year olds who have finished school but who are not continuing to higher education. Requested by village leaders and a community women’s group, CARD provides tailoring and electrical technician training.

SURESH

At the request of the local community, this livestock project provides women from vulnerable and marginalised communities with seed money to start poultry rearing. This project increases income and reduces cases of malnutrition.

WOMEN FOR WOMEN (WFW)

WFW trains young women who have graduated school to become a nursing assistant and to secure a diploma in medical laboratory technology. This qualifies them to work in hospitals, clinics and laboratories.

DA

This project improves livelihoods for indigenous tribal families in the Sundarban region by providing women’s groups with livestock training relating to chickens, pigs and goats.

SPREAWS

SPEAWS delivers a bangle-selling project to young women, mostly mothers and, in turn, this reduces the number of school dropouts. These women learn how to buy and sell bangles made from local materials, and how best to save and reinvest their earnings.

Our Overseas Project Team, volunteers chaired by our International Development Manager, support our project selection process for India.
