Global Reach: Past Grantees

Network of Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (NEED)

Rural and semi-rural youth in northern India’s ‘Hindi Belt’ face some of the worst indicators in terms of human development of the entire country. NEED’s approach to addressing poverty in this region emphasizes self-help; after organizing community members into self-help groups, NEED provides basic inputs, such as micro-credit or training, with the expectations that women and youth then make further strides on their own.
