Our social entrepreneurship consultancy services match skilled professionals with entrepreneurs in emerging markets, such as Gauri and Udita from Hyderabad India.
In Hyderabad, we regularly work with these two lovely young ladies. Umeed was started by teachers Gauri and Udita when they discovered that the living conditions of their students at school were effecting their education.
They also noticed that some of their 8 year old students were having to start working, in order to be able to pay for their own school fees. So they started training the children’s Mums to be able to support themselves through the creation and selling of handicrafts made from recycled paper.
