Vision of Udyogini: To fully equip poor rural women with the skills and knowledge to increase and sustain their earning power. Udyogini aspires to become a nationally and internationally recognized agency specializing in business development services for NGOs and poor women.
About Udyogini: Udyogini - means woman entrepreneur. Udyogini, the organization, works with poor women to improve their skills as producers and their knowledge of the markets they operate in, so as to ensure long-term returns. In rural India women provide for their families' basic needs by contributing to farm labour and by subsistence level income generation. These income generating activities are as varied as running a rice dehusking unit; operating an oil press; collecting, selling and processing minor forest produce; embroidering on textiles and leather; and, making baskets from local varieties of grass. Udyogini is involved in facilitating the learning of basic management skills that are required for running such microenterprises -- skills needed not only to manage their production but also to market their products and ensure better returns.
