Sustainable Income Generation for Women

Rural families earn their livelihood through multiple means. CORD offers a flexible approach to earning one's livelihood and encourages villagers in large numbers to leverage their aptitudes. CORD facilitates vocational training in diverse activities, including agriculture, dairy, petty shops, food products, fabrics (weaving, sewing, knitting, and embroidery), traditional painting and bamboo products. Ensuring self-reliance, building operational management, and mainstreaming the entrepreneurs into the local market are all integral processes in the services CORD provides.
