Women on Wings' mission is to take families in rural India out of poverty through economic development. When rural women have control over the household money, this has positive implications for immediate well-being as well as raising the level of human capital and economic growth through improved health, nutrition, and education outcomes. It is the way to break the cycle of poverty (Wold Bank).
How - by creating jobs for women in rural India
We provide tailor made business knowledge and mentoring to existing social enterprises in India, that provide work to rural women, to scale their business and thus co-create sustainable jobs for women. Next to working with social businesses, we provide the same -but on a much larger scale - to state governments on developing their women entrepreneurship programs.
What - access to tailor made business knowledge and this community platform
We work with existing social businesses and state governments and bring in business knowledge and mentoring. We focus on businesses with potential growth in women centric sectors like textiles & handicrafts, food & agri, and forestry.
Our experts, professional and experienced business minds, support these enterprises / government programs in their growth. We share strategic and practical knowledge across the value chain. Our experts bring 15+ years of experience in e.g. marketing, finance, HR, product development, social media, or supply chain management.
Jointly we create sustainable businesses and build long-term partnerships. All ingredients for the successful Women on Wings recipe.
- We never start a business.
- We do not train women.
