About the campaign

Why are We fundraising?

We want to impart a skill-set which can provide employment to the people in rural or urban areas. These skills are for manufacturing FMCG items in a group at local level. We have planned to train more than 1,000 people in year 2016. The program will not only include training but to also provide support and know-how of packaging and marketing. This way, if manufacturing, packaging and marketing will be done locally then it will reduce the price of manufactured items. We have decided to train people in the manufacture of those items which are in high demand, so that there can be regular flow of fund to the group resulting in a sustainable system for a long time.

Our idea is to make cluster of cottage industry which can manufacture the items of daily use.
