Who We Are
GEN works at the community (grassroots) level to support and empower individuals and groups to identify their community goals. We then help them achieve them. GEN’s main partner in India is END POVERTY which we helped set up in 2009. We focus on villages in Tijara, Alwar District in Rajasthan. 70% of the people are Muslims from the Meo community and 30% are Sikhs and Hindus. The community is mainly engaged in agriculture and dairying. 40% live below the poverty line. Apart from agriculture most do not have the education or skills for other jobs,
Support our innovative programme to teach young teenage girls who have missed out on schooling.
Or support their teachers - local girls to whom we are training to become community leaders.
