Summary

This Income Generation Cooperative enables local women to raise the standard of living for their family, provide proper nutrition for their kids, purchase health insurance and obtain respect for women

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Through teaching our Maternal Health Education Program, we found that most women in the rural community are taught repeatedly about proper maternal health and child nutrition, but lack the means to achieve it. Furthermore, in a male dominated community where the man is the only one expected to work a job, most women don't have any say on how their money is distributed. These factors, instead of the lack of knowledge, are the primary reason for poor health and children malnutrition.

How will this project solve this problem?

By enabling 50 mothers to farm for profit, this project both empowers women in households and enables participants to provide proper nutrition for their kids.

Potential Long Term Impact

The cooperatives provide micro-finance opportunities for participants to start their own businesses. In the long run, the project will give the whole community the means to improve their own lives in their own way with their own power.
