Empowering women to empower their community.
Education and awareness
Beginning in 2005, Blossom worked within an Indian government micro-finance scheme designed to create and empower Self-Help Groups (SHGs). The SHGs had leadership programmes, training, and opened bank accounts and internal accounts. Close to 1200 SHGs were created, with 15-20 people - almost entirely women - per group.

Support Local Female Farmers
Smallholder and marginal female farmers in the Virudhunagar district earn as low as INR 75 per day (1 USD), living well below the poverty line. The impact of COVID-19, with market shutdowns and disruption of supply chains, has further worsened their condition, demanding urgent action to build up their long-term economic resilience.
With your donation
We can set up internal saving schemes among women farmers groups, provide financial literacy and entrepreneurship, and agricultural training, buy inputs such as farming equipment and small livestock. Ultimately, your help will equip our women with the skills and means to start an all-female, community-owned agri-enterprise benefitting thousands of female farmers.
