Give wings to women entrepreneurs in rural India
Through this project, we anticipate the growth of a network of empowered young women entrepreneurs in rural southern India. They will not only provide for themselves and their families but will also bring to the local women farmers, a wealth of new ideas from around the world to improve their lives. This will contribute to the transformation of the food system in the local communities, leading to healthier diets, sustainable livelihoods and a reduction of agriculture's environmental impact.
