GOAL

Creating economic opportunities and empowering women tea workers through sustainable farming in Sri Lanka

Our project in a nutshell

FOCUS

The project is aimed at women tea workers in the Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka. The decline in the Sri Lankan tea industry is putting their precarious livelihood in jeopardy.

GOAL

Provide these women with an alternative, better source of livelihood. Women will be given 6-months training in organic farming and basic business management skills.

VISION

Empower women to gain a sense of independence, increase their income and improve their living conditions and their health as well as those of their families.
