At A Glance

Our livelihood initiative is geared towards achieving greater livelihood freedom for the rural and urban poor, and promoting choice and accountability in the area of skill development for underprivileged youth. We aim to further policy measures that increase ease of doing business and remove regulatory or market entry and exit barriers for India’s small entrepreneurs (street hawkers, cycle rickshaw pullers, small shop owners, farmers, among others). We are focussed on Street Vendors, Fisheries, Agriculture, and MSMEs and our work aims at removing regulatory barriers that hamper the prosperity of individuals.
