I Can Livelihood program revolves around women and housewives, who are from poor and less privileged communities, with the goal of empowering them with the knowledge, services and technologies that will lead them to new opportunities in life.
Livelihood campaigns implemented by I CAN Foundation have a strategically approach promoting quality in health, education, skills training, capacity building and awareness among women and girls coming from marginalised communities. In our all sustainable livelihood campaigns we have one thing in common is to: improving the bargaining power of poor and marginalised communities, improving their knowledge, empowering them with services and technologies.
I Can Foundation invests in building social capital, promoting collective power through self-help groups, supporting initiatives for the preservation of traditional art, and organising skill development training for youth and women under our project 'UDGAM'. Foundation's income generating activities specially for poor women have directly affected them financially.
I Can works with women, housewives and women small farmers in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand to improve sustainable wage employment, support agricultural practices, nutritional security and climate change. To bring security to the natural resource and rural basic needs, it is necessary to maintain resources for the future, promote individual and institutional capacities, and change vulnerability to risk in the areas of agriculture and livelihoods. Our work also focuses on building information on asset-base, knowledge, institutional rights and governance to improve climate resilience and nutritional security.
