How your money will help

The aim of the project in Odisha is to empower women to become leaders in their villages. By providing education and coaching, these women can become champions for a better village.

One female leader with the right support can achieve so much, from setting up schools and clinics and creating jobs, to bringing electricity to houses and building new roads, bridges and community buildings.

€ 1,000 can train 3 women for 1 year

€ 5,000 can train 3 women for an entire cycle of 5 years

€ 10,000 can train all women from 3 village councils for 1 year

Join the Fi Global Odisha Challenge and make a difference to these communities in India.
