ABOUT US

We are a team of dedicated and passionate professionals with a shared vision of empowering rural women in and around Uttar Pradesh (U.P.), India, with the dignity to earn their own livelihood. In order to achieve this we actively engage with partners and volunteers to train and up-skill our rural youth and homemakers. We aggressively look for larger markets and buyers for our products as that directly translates to more rural lives that are positively impacted by larger job opportunities.

Our aim is to enable a successful and self-sustaining rural economy with its women at the centre.

OUR KNOWLEDGE PARTNER

Rajesh-Bheda-logo

The journey started in 2018 with strengthening skills training at IVillage by implementing RBC’s globally benchmarked 3G tailor training system. This reduced the training time substantially and productivity levels at the production center improved. RBC has been instrumental in bringing a change at IVillage production center with multiple management dialogues and training-coaching sessions on sourcing and design interventions, communication and advocacy guidance, production management and soft skills training for key team members. Community mapping and focused training by RBC has helped the initiative support the women by economic empowerment and profitability. The mask making initiative is an example of the knowledge partners helping to connect good initiative with better performance and profit generation to help sustain the households during the pandemic.

THE MAN BEHIND THE VISION

BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD

What has today become a revolution, started with the vision of one man – Sam (Virendar) Singh. a retired head of DuPont South Asia. Having grown up in Anupshahar in district Bulandshahar of Uttar Pradesh, India, he knew that the region was infamous for its poverty, crime, and child marriages. Moreover, it is one of the least educated and literate sections of India.

Sam knew that to break this cycle of poverty, he had to first improve the quality of life for the weakest members of this society – the rural girl children, who are considered economic and social burden. Forgotten and uneducated, they are forever dependent upon their husbands or male family members for their livelihood. This leads to a cycle of repression, abuse, and neglect that can only be broken with the self-reliance and enlightenment that education brings.

OUR CLIENTS

We are happy that so many clients have chosen to empower rural women earn their livelihood through us. We are proud to be associated with our clients.
