Part 1 – Sept 2015. We chanced upon this opportunity through a dear friend who was asked by the Grameen Foundation to help them on a project. Grameen Foundation aims to provide micro-financing to women in rural areas around the region in order to empower them to earn and contribute to their families. It was incredibly enlightening visiting and talking to the women in various rural villagers 2-3 hours out of Lucknow and understanding their lifestyles, challenges and dreams for their families and their kids.
Part 2 – 2019. We hope to be able to return to India in 2019 and are looking for local partners we can work with on this initiative.
