Sustainable Livelihood Development

The Foundation works towards improving the quality of life of the people by promoting sustainable livelihood activities through participatory, community-based approaches. This ensures optimum management of the existing resource along with broadening the scope of economic opportunities. The common thread that runs across all the sustainable livelihood promotion programs is to improve the bargaining power of the poorer and marginalised communities by providing a range of informed choices and livelihood options, facilitate stakeholder consultations, and developing local partnerships to upgrade the basket of skill sets. The Foundation invests in building social capital, promoting collective strength through self-help groups, supporting initiatives towards preservation of traditional art and organising skill development training for the women artisans.
