India: employability, resilient livelihoods & improved health for women and girls in Madhepura

Close to new Alstom Madhepura manufacturing site (that will build electric locomotives for Indian Railways), this project targets about 2.500 households in 7 villages and aims to enhance skills and capabilities of women and girls (aged 16 years and above) for resilient livelihoods and improved health outcomes through a participatory process.

  • The first objective is to help disadvantaged women/girls to get access to dignified and sustainable employment ;
  • Another challenge is to create an employability ecosystem that is responsive and supportive of needs and aspirations of women and girls ;
  • Lastly comes the provision of basic access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene for families – especially those with pregnant mothers or mothers with young children.
