Business partner of Women on Wings since August 2014

Wingreens Farms vision is “to marry the concepts of social good and environmental sustainability with high profitability in the field of agriculture”.

Wingreens Farms is reworking the manner in which business in the Agriculture sector is being carried out in India. Through demonstration along with education, Wingreens Farms has succeeded in moving farmers away from traditional, water hungry crops to far more lucrative and water efficient crops.

The ‘WIN’ in Wingreens stands for “Women’s Initiative Network” meaning that Wingreens empowers women both financially and emotionally. At the Wingreens Farms Training Institute, rural and semi urban women are given certified skill training in the field of food technology, food hygiene and food processing that provides them with an array of employment opportunities with Wingreens Farms and beyond.

Wingreens Farms unconditionally sponsors the education of the children of all the women working in its employ. In doing so, Wingreens Farms gives the women the added benefit of working with the assurance that their children are not only well taken care of, but that they receive a quality education while their mothers are at work.

Women on Wings will support the Wingreens team, which works from its office in Gurgaon, in scaling up their business by working with them on the growth strategy and setting out a roadmap until 2017. The joint goal is to create a company that processes the finest quality of organic products which will be sold in India and beyond through various sales channels. A significant increase of the number of women that find employment through Wingreens, will be the result.

“Women on Wings brings us a unique and very valuable opportunity to work with and learn from the best business minds and support us as we address the challenge of increasing the number of jobs and livelihood opportunities for women in rural India.”
