Supporting Women's Groups

HV has established grass roots projects in several rural communities by providing training to women's groups to provide them with skills for additional income generation. Training includes production of marketable handicrafts and adult literacy programs. We also run micro credit projects to support women entrepreneurs. HV together with its significant international network identifies ways to expand the market for handmade items produced by these women's group.
