Project of female empowerment in Varanasi

Where we work > India

Pangea Foundation, which has been working in partnership with the Indian organization Sampark for years, has been contacted by the Krishnamurti Foundation, which is based in Varanasi, and which deals with the education of children aged 6 to 18 years.

The Krishnamurti Foundation has asked Pangea-Sampark to help it develop a comprehensive project among the rural population that works their lands, to respond to multiple needs including:

• work and poverty eradication;

• the removal of discrimination and violence against women;

• health care.

The project aims to promote economic emancipation through business development, savings collection, credit granting, microfinance and the creation of local cooperatives.
