Über uns

Saath Livelihoods was promoted in 2007 as a not for profit company. It was established to focus on livelihood promotion/ opportunities for vulnerable sections of society (specifically youth, women, people with disabilities and artisan groups) by developing innovative and sustainable business models.
The goal of Saath Livelihoods is to improve quality of life of vulnerable urban and rural populations through enhanced livelihood options.

Our vision is to integrate innovative and sustainable business models into community while developing social/ human capital.

Our mission is to promote and/or support social entrepreneurs and enterprises, create opportunities for livelihood enhancement as well as livelihood diversification for communities, especially for youth, women, artisan groups, and other excluded groups.

The objectives of the Company are:
