Shivia first partnered with SAATH in 2012/13 on their Nirman Programme, providing training to workers in the informal sector in the areas of electrical work, carpentry, masonry and plumbing to increase their earning potential.

We are delighted to be working with SAATH once again on two new initiatives:

Beautypreneur Programme

Providing business skills training to women living in urban slum areas so they can start their own enterprise in the Beauty & Wellness sector

Cooks Training Programme

A skills-based training programme aimed at women living in urban slum areas to enhance job prospects and increase income in the Home Management sector.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.
