We Empower

The quality of life of communities in the underserved communities of the country.

GMRVF’s vocational training initiative works towards bridging the skill gap between employers and those who seek employment.

The Foundation has set up and is running 13 vocational training institutes which focusses on training unemployed youth in a variety of skills like electrical, refrigeration and air-conditioning, two-wheeler repairs, excavator operations, bedside patient care, computer operations, industrial and domestic tailoring, etc. The Foundation also works towards settlement of these trainees through either helping them find jobs or settle in self-enterprises.

Further, Foundation runs Pratibha Career guidance-cum-Counseling Centers to inform youth about educational and employment opportunities and to prepare youth to avail the same. The centers provide information about job and educational opportunities, counseling, coaching, library support etc. to help the youth take informed decisions about their careers.

The Foundation‘s initiative called EMPOWER (Enabling Marketing of Products of Women Entrepreneurs) supports women from under-privileged communities to get an income based on making craft-based products, by providing them required training, marketing and other inputs. EMPOWER helps the women sell their products through various channels such as shops at the Airport, exhibitions, bulk orders for conferences and seminars, online marketing etc.

GMRVF supports communities to strengthen their existing livelihoods and also to take up new livelihoods by providing appropriate training, material, backward and forward linkages and marketing support. The approach is to create a portfolio of livelihoods for Below Poverty Line families so that their risks are reduced and incomes enhanced. Rural livelihoods are supported across the value chain to enhance the incomes of small farmers and other rural producers.
