U.S. Mission to India: Supporting Her Empowerment via Digital Tools

Deadline: 20 February 2019

U.S. Mission to India is seeking proposals for its grant program entitled “Supporting Her Empowerment via Digital Tools” to increase women artisans’ economic empowerment in North India by educating and training local CSOs and NGOs on the digital tools and strategies required to grow businesses that contribute to the economic growth of their communities.

This program is expected to reach this goal by:

  • Developing the capacity of local CSOs and NGOs to support their local partners with “train-the-trainer” sessions on how to teach these skills.
  • Continuing to support and grow the network of U.S. government-sponsored exchange program alumni in North India by creating ongoing mentoring opportunities for program participants.

The Objective of this program is to develop and execute a series of three two-day workshops that provide CSO and NGO representatives working with women artisans in North India with digital tools to increase their competitiveness in online markets.

Based on funding availability, this project will build capacity of women artisans by harnessing their entrepreneurial and innovative spirits and empowering them with digital tools to grow further.  Under this program, the grantee will organize and implement three 2-day workshops on “Digital Strategies for Business” in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh; Jaipur, Rajasthan; and Ludhiana, Punjab for a minimum of ten and a maximum of 15 CSO/NGO representatives in each program city.

The workshops should include hands-on training that will teach participants in each city how to use commercially-available technology to sell art and/or related products online. The workshops should also include a “train-the-trainer” teaching methodology to allow participants to share their new skills with women artisans from far-flung and rural areas, and within their communities. Each participant must produce an initial idea to execute by the end of the workshops.
