Unrealistic expectations and stereotyped gender roles have time and again prevented numerous young girls and women from taking the path of innovation and entrepreneurship. SELCO aims to change the status quo for women and hopes to make it a level playing field for women leaders from all walks of life to innovate, invent, create enterprises, and rise up the ranks of any organization they may choose. With this in mind, SELCO hopes to facilitate the creation of numerous platforms in the underserved areas, in order to encourage women and girls to become equal partners in this endeavor. SELCO shall work with many grassroots institutions, vocational schools like ITIs and Rudsetti, sector experts and local governments across the country to create pipelines to select, mentor and financially support women and young girls as future sustainability ambassadors.

Aim and Objectives :

SELCO is keen on laying the foundation for the program on ‘Young Girls and Women as Future Sustainability Ambassadors.’ The program aims at providing equitability, just representation and inclusive decision making to women and young girls from varied backgrounds across India. A critical part of the program is aimed at empowering 25000 Young Girls as Future Sustainability Ambassadors in line with the UN2030 Goals. Through the program, we hope to work with underserved communities including rural/tribal youth, youth facing climate vulnerabilities etc. The idea is to build a holistic platform for young girls in the field of sustainability by creating channels for them to become drivers of sustainable businesses, to attain financial independence and to enable their overall well being.


We intend to leverage the consultant’s expertise in nurturing youth leadership, capaciting young girls and developing youth/gender centric curricula through this program. SELCO will layer in the gender and climate lens with sustainable energy as the underlying factor.

Scope of Work:

The consultant is expected to conceptualize and design the first phase of the mentioned program. The first phase of the program, also known as the pre-implementation phase, will focus on the overarching concept and strategy that can inform the second phase ie. the implementation phase
