Organisation Overview

Grama is a small sustainable community development organisation in rural India. Their prime objective is to enable women to come together via self-help groups to develop small enterprises, community co-operatives and other sources of income with the aim of increasing education, empowering local women’s groups and decreasing gender inequality.

Over 37,000 women have been involved in some 2500 self-help groups and co-operatives in recent years, being trained in areas like the production of ready-made garments, fashion fabrics, handicrafts, food production and other skills related to local sustainable products.

The aim of the organisation is to promote social inclusion and the empowerment of women in this socially conservative region.

Why do they need this training?

Grama recognise that there is an opportunity to positively impact both their own knowledge and the efficiency of the training they themselves provide. In understanding the basic principles of marketing, they could increase their own visibility whilst also improve the effectiveness of their social enterprise programmes in the community.

Who would fit this role?

The ideal volunteer would be someone with significant marketing and communication experience, preferably with knowledge of small enterprises and entrepreneurship.
