The vision for Hand in Hand Sweden is a world where every individual has the strength, motivation and opportunity to get out of poverty and where future generations can develop their societies towards a sustainable future. Through its collaboration with Hand in Hand, Bombayworks has ensured that over a period of 27 months, over 150 entrepreneurs have been trained in self-help groups. This in turn contributes directly to greatly improved future prospects for the entire Chitarkoli community in India in several respects. In addition to establishing new businesses, over 100 job opportunities have been created.

As a result, individual and collective self-esteem has been boosted, leading to significantly improved communication with local authorities, councils, buyers and customers. Ultimately, this has strengthened civil rights. Since most entrepreneurs are women, gender equality in Chitarkoli has also taken huge strides.

Improved health and well-being - Hand in Hand and Bombayworks invest in the welfare of Chitarkoli.

As small businesses flourish and incomes increase, improved public health becomes a natural consequence for the local community. This is crucial in Chitarkoli, where residents have a long way to go to the nearest health centre. Therefore, Hand in Hand has established a health centre where over 150 residents have been treated for various ailments, and around fifty malnourished children have received help. Better health and hygiene are usually the immediate and long-term effects of these efforts.

Hand in Hand ensures that businesses maintain a green profile with increasing environmental ambitions. Operations in Chitarkoli are no exception. Waste management is central, as is ensuring that the nearest water bodies are not contaminated. Regular efforts are made to clean these bodies of water from plastics and debris.
