Women in Rural India are vital to the development of the country. Traditionally, they have been outside the decision making process, deprived by the circumstance of inequality and lack of opportunity, largely owing to the social and economic considerations. Economic empowerment of this populace is the single most important step for the social transformation as it enables them to participate, as equal citizens, in the social as well as economic changes in the society.
At Trishank, we are committed to the vision of inclusive and sustainable development of the country. Towards this purpose, we understand that the work has to start at the grassroots, targeting the most disadvantaged people in our country by enabling livelihoods to enhance their well-being. We strive to expand our outreach to serve the marginalised in the most populated and underdeveloped areas of the country.

At Trishank, we comprehend the urgent need to create access to work opportunities for women within rural communities for unlocking the thus far untapped resource to undertake entrepreneurial endeavours without having to relocate or migrate, with small augmentation in skill set and without the restriction of demographic limitations.
We mobilise rural women in a cluster of two to three and federate them to create a pool of volunteers who form a distribution channel for door to door delivery of FMCG goods. This takes us towards capacity building of women from rural communities to undertake entrepreneurial ventures, take up leadership roles and become the spark which initiates prosperity for their own self, the family, their village, their community and further.
Past experiences have shown us that even a small incidence of financial empowerment definitely leads to better access to opportunities of education, health care and decision making within the family in particular and community at large. Hence, our efforts at Trishank help in giving a presence to the voice of the rural woman, thus bridging the gap in gender inequality and improvement in living standards of the most disadvantaged sections of the rural society.
Trishank is one of a kind, community driven organisation powered by the ideas from the finest minds from the context and training of social entrepreneurship, business, technology, law and public policy. With a fine combination of fresh young approach and seasoned experience, our attempt is to facilitate overcoming of social and gender barriers with and for financial empowerment. It is our conviction that empowering rural women can be the single most important step towards overcoming poverty, backwardness and marginalisation be it individuals, families or communities.
