EP is working for deprived community in Alwar District of Rajasthan state in the area of women empowerment, girls education and poverty alleviation
Work and Achievements
End Poverty is a not for profit voluntary organization. It was established in 2009 with a purpose to contribute towards poverty reduction in India. End Poverty has been working in Alwar district since inception with focus on sustainable livelihood creation, girl’s education and rural development. EP’s main target segment is poor households, landless agricultural labourers, small and marginal farmers, traditional artisans, poor and needy women and unemployed youths. The main approach of EP is to design & deliver innovative and self-sustaining development programs & village-based initiatives as set out in its Mission and Objectives. EP’s core value is to undertake development projects and deliver them efficiently within the agreed timeframe and budget.
As around 40% of the people are living below poverty line in the area where EP works, it has analysed the economic situation of the area and found that over 90% people are engaged in agriculture. Agricultural productivity is low as farmers still follow traditional methods of farming. Farmers have low surplus income and as a result they are unable to invest in farming improvement and take risk to go for high income crops. Dairy farming is an equally important economic activity in the area. The area is primarily a 'buffalo' belt and animal holding is good. But in the absence of organised players to capture the surplus, farmers are in the grasp of middle man. Non farm sector activities are not popular in the area. Youth lack in education and employable skills and as a result cannot get jobs. Entrepreneurship is low in absence of education, capacity to invest and credit availability.
