The Challenge

Between India and Nepal, over 288 million people still live in poverty.

Unstable low-wage jobs keep families in a cycle of intergenerational poverty. Gender inequality - as an additional challenge - means women have fewer resources to cope.

Communities lack access to clean energy sources for lighting and cooking, often using instead harmful fuels like kerosene, to which women are most exposed.

Pollinate Group exists to empower women to become micro-entrepreneurs by distributing life-changing products such as solar lights, fans, water filters and female sanitary products across marginalised communities in urban slums and rural villages in India and Nepal.

Pollinate also provides training in digital and financial literacy, marketing, sales and other business skills to improve women's opportunities to succeed.
