Rural Development Programme

End Poverty's non-farm sector interventions focus on catering to the needs of the rural folks, especially women, and empowering them with economic and social independence through dedicated efforts in sectors other than agriculture and dairy.


What do we do in non-farm sector?

Due to the shrinking land-ownership across the country, it is imperative that an impetus is given to the non-farm sector in terms of monetary or skilling support.

End Poverty has realized this pressing need and has been working on the upliftment of rural folks, especially women by creating impact in the non-farm space as well. This includes a plethora of activities, right from skilling women on a simple vocation such as stitching to creating institutions or enterprises run exclusively by women, which would then work towards increasing these women’s income generation capabilities. Some of the activities carried out under this are:

  • Linking rural women to financial institutions through SHGs
  • Training these women on a vocation – stitching, pickle making, etc.
  • Support in setting up enterprises run by these women complementing their income

SHGs supported and nurtured

If supporting rural folks in generating income through non-farm activities is something you would want, there are many ways in which you can contribute

Sustainable Agriculture

The agriculture sector faces significant challenges, such as small land holdings, a lack of infrastructure, poor-quality input supplies, and a lack of modern scientific knowledge etc. To address these issues, we work with the farmers, helping them adopt the best farming practices through regular training and enhancing their farm income through value chain development.


Rural Development

We facilitate and propel regional development in Rural areas by placing a strong emphasis on infrastructure development. We strive to build the capacities of rural communities and identify agents of change from those communities to lead to the overall development of our operational areas.


Dairy Development

We are driven by the purpose of uplifting small and marginal dairy farmers. Hence, have strategically taken the Dairy Development Program with the purpose of improving animal productivity, creating an effective value chain and building capacity of the farmers. Our overarching goal is to promote the development of dairy farmers by increasing their income while ensuring the overall viability of the dairy sector.
