TEJASVANI: Dharma Life Women Entrepreneur
Dharma Life is a social enterprise that creates women entrepreneurs at the village level and provides them with socially impactful products relevant to its causes. It trains individuals at the last mile to become Dharma Life Entrepreneurs and provides them with developmental support. Dharma Life partners with corporates and social organizations to provide a portfolio of products and services to meet the rural consumer’s needs.
Gaurav Mehta, Founder and CEO Dharma Life: “Our training model is called TEJASVANI which literally means ‘radiant’. It highlights the role of the female entrepreneur as a “torch bearer” of society. She is a Tejasvani who is confident, intelligent & a change maker. She creates impact not only on an economic level, but more so on a social level for society at large.

The Program
The sanitary pads program ‘Making periods normal’ is a partnership between Women on Wings and Dutch organizations Simavi and Rutgers WPF, with financial support of the Dutch Postcode Lottery. In India this program is executed with various Indian partners of the three, like Dharma Life.

“In order to reach our goal of one million jobs for women in rural India, we have a strong focus on job creating business models in textile and food & agri.”
