ALG envisions shaping of 10,000 rural women business leaders by the end of 2030. We have partnered with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), IRRI, Axis Bank Foundation, IKEA - DISHA for delivering two phases of the programme. With successful completion of two phases, the programme has developed 200 women entrepreneurs from 7 locations across Telangana, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

The WEP is designed to open up the possibility of rural micro entrepreneurship as a practical option for women from rural geographies. The programme demonstrates that women with limited formal education can well set up, run and excel at their own enterprises. This is a 9-month long programme, built on the experiential learning framework, with 75% of the time spent on structured practicum exercises covering foundational managerial concepts and 25% of the time allocated for facilitated classroom learning to reinforce the theoretical frameworks related to the concepts. The curriculum is structured around four pillars– Self-Transformation, Entrepreneurial Skills, Entrepreneurial Mindsets & Enterprise Excellence.

The third phase of the programme begins in 2 states – Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. Access Livelihood Groups is looking for a passionate development professional that holds their value and expertise with the programme’s vision.
