Who We Are
Ekal Gramothan Foundation is a non-profit organization which runs programs for growth of rural and tribal people.
Ekal Gramothan Foundation (EGF) was founded under the aegis of Ekal Movement. With active interventions in more than 85k+ rural villages, Ekal Movement is one of the largest organization in the world, working to empower the underprivileged. It mobilizes financial resources; helps in up-gradation of skills of rural youths for self-employment opportunities; facilitates the formation of self-help groups (SGHs) and micro-finance; ensures protection of women and children’s rights and, makes available technologies in a simpler form to the rural poor.
With the support of Indian Government, CSRs, Overseas Companies and Individuals, Ekal runs various programs across the nation. Its objective is to strengthen social and economic condition of rural and tribal population.
Ekal Gramothan Foundation’s vision is to covers two different but interrelated dimensions of rural development: Economic dimension and Social dimension. Economic dimension encompasses providing both capacity and opportunities for the poor and low-income households in particular, benefit from the economic growth. Social dimension supports social development of poor and low-income households, promotes gender equality and women’s empowerment and provides social safety nets for vulnerable groups.
Our Mission is to develop rural and tribal Bharat.
We make constant efforts to form villages economically self-reliant and socially empowered.
“Putting people at the center of development is much more than an
intellectual exercise. It means making progress equitable and broad based,
enabling people to be active participants in change.”
Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.
We apply leadership and expertise to social issues — and find unique solutions for rural problems.
Our passion and perseverance create lasting change. EGF members can be found in your community and across the globe who constantly work for needy ones.
