HOLISTIC EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVES BASED ON RESILIENCY SOLUTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT ECONOMY SOLUTIONS

Membracon India in collaboration with CEI is working to progress in all of the indicators according to UN Sustainable Goals (SDGs) aiming to achieve exponential transformation in the conditions of the socio-economically disadvantaged by combating issues of:
  • Unemployment
  • Lack of access to the right resources
  • Malnutrition and other Health issues especially among women and children.
  • Lack of access to the global supply chain
  • Lack of access to various avenues of Employment and Empowerment especially to women.
  • Lack of literacy, education and numeracy
  • Climate and Clean Energy Issues etc.
We work in collaboration with various educational institutes, government bodies, corporates, individuals and subject-matter experts in order to create an ecology that truly empowers the rural and tribal communities. Furthermore, we are implementing Resiliency & Development Economy Solutions for developing economies of the world especially in South East Asia, furthering the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

MARKET-LINKED ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES
1.-MARKET-LINKED-ENTREPRENEURSHIP-
Rural & Tribal groups have always shared a unique relationship with nature and follow sustainable practices of livelihood. Their way of life is unique. However, due to lack of accessibility and development, and long neglect, the standard of life among these groups remains poor.
HORTICULTURE AND ORGANIC FARMING INITIATIVES
2.-HORTICULTURE-AND-ORGANIC-FARMING-INITIATIVES-scaled
The tribal forest communities of India have access to a rich array of forest resources. However, they are also the poorest in terms of access to critical inputs, technology, and food security. This unfortunately has led to a vicious cycle of starvation – malnutrition – low mortality rates amongst tribals.
CEI WALK FOR EMPOWERMENT

India is home to a vast number of ancient tribes who live in harmony with wildlife and the ecosystem. This vast tribal population of our country adds another feather to the colourful, diverse culture it adorns!

HEALTH & NUTRITION PROGRAMMES
