Our didis’ spend all of their daily income the very same day on their most basic needs - food for them and their children. Higher and steadier income truly changes her life. it feeds her children, keeps them healthy, repairs her house, dignifies her life and most of all gives hope to her and her children

What do we do?

We help didis in the poorest 10% of households in each village. A 'didi' in such a household knows only one way to earn - hard labor for poor wages. We help them start their own micro-businesses - farming, goat rearing, and shops.

Our Approach

Process

Our didis are at first are difficult to identify and work with. Men have always overshadowed her. So we follow a structured approach. We get the elders to support, then the panchayat mukhiyas and pradhans. We conduct household assessments to identify her needs and status.

Step 2: Securing food and basic needs
Process

We provide 3 months of weekly ration in cash or kind. This is her ‘breathing space’. It helps her forget her worries for a while and focus on learning. We help them join self-help groups, made up of only women members. These self-help groups become their pillar of support for life. Didis give confidence to each other, motivate each other, save small sums of money together

Step 3: Livelihood planning
Process

Our coaches work with didis and their families to identify ways to increase their incomes. Depending on the local context, income-generating activities may include shop-keeping, agriculture, or livestock rearing. We coach them every week and handhold them every step of the way

Step 4: 'Big Push' - starting a business
Process

The fact is, banks and formal lending institutions do not lend to the poorest women. Reasons - no property in her name and no steady income.

This is why your donation is critical. We give her a grant - a big push. It is her big breakthrough. Now she can focus on building her livelihood without a loan burden. Our expert coaches monitor so that your grant is used wisely.

Step 5: Regular coaching and hand-holding
Process

Our coaches hand-hold the didis throughout the program through weekly visits. During these visits, the most important role of the coach is to keep the didis motivated. It is hard work but it is that simple. Alongside this, the coach helps her in business planning, money management, health, gender issues, and social issues

Step 6: Access to government welfare and support
Process

Each of us has different starting points in life's marathon. Our didis start at the very back with tired legs. Your donation gives her a chance to catch up.

Our coaches map available government schemes to the didis and help her access them. This includes creating bank accounts and required documentation as well as filling applications. The result - safety nets that protect her and her kids when they fall.
