GEN is A Grassroots Empowerment Network for sustainable human development in India. 
GEN works primarily through its Indian partner End Poverty (EP) in education, livelihood and village development for a group of 50 impoverished agricultural villages in Tijara, Alwar District, Rajasthan India.  We respond to villagers expressed needs in:
  • Womens education especially for those teenagers who never went to school.  1700 adolescent girls have benefitted
  • Livelihood development for women particularly handicraft production and marketing- now there are 10 informal centres and over 80 seamstresses
  • Village Development Groups – improving village life and farming activities.  They help villagers to identify problems areas, assess priorities, and take action to tackle them. 
  • Plant a Tree for Life encouraging farmers to diversify traditional farming practices to include small orchards.  So far since 2014 over 100,000 saplings have been provided to farmers to this end.
  • Dairy development training 400 farmers in ways of improving milk production to meet national standards
