We were established in the Netherlands on September 4, 2007, by social entrepreneurs Ellen Tacoma and Maria van der Heijden. They had one single mission: taking families in rural India out of poverty through economic development. Our BHAG: to co-create one million jobs for women in rural India.
Today we are a team of 13 (Dutch and Indians), 54 volunteer experts in the Netherlands, and we partner with 48 social enterprises in India. Together we have co-created 281,000 jobs for women in rural India.
A big thank you to all who have believed / still are believing in our mission and in our approach.
It is only thanks to your support and contribution that we shall have completed 15 years of creating impact on September 4, 2022.
