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.

Our Vision

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

Our Mission is to develop rural and tribal Bharat. 


We promote and mobilize health and environmental measures and considerations at the village and the local levels And organic farming as well.


Villages can potentially play an important role in generating employment opportunities within the local economy. The growth of village community depends upon the condition of agriculture and other local activities. To make villages self-sustainable economically, we provide skill training to youth, women and farmers.
