About us

India: a large and rapidly expanding global economic power. The middle class is growing along with it. Yet, the underclass lives on just two dollars a day. There is very little paid work in rural India. Families lack income: there are high levels of poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy.

Together with its business partners Women on Wings aims to create one million jobs for women in rural India. A job means an income, economic autonomy and an escape from the cycle of poverty. Research shows that women spend their income on their families. Children can go to school, which increases their chances of a better future.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
