This is a photographic excerpt of our most recently received project report.

It’s from Education, Communication and Development Trust or “EDUCATR” is a RSWR-sponsored project in Tamil Nadu, India.

Like all India-based RSWR projects, these female entrepreneurs come from the Dalit class, sometimes known as “the Untouchables.”

These women cultivate and sell packets of dry organic vegetables.

They have been met with weather challenges that have slowed vegetable production and continue to struggle for customers biased by the caste system.  Still they have remained healthy and are growing and have been able to financially benefit 119 women and their families thus far.

This was made possible by a RSWR grant for $4,475.
