Volunteering Opportunity for a Relationship Manager for Rangoli

Drishtee is a social organization working for rural communities of over 6000 villages in various states in India, with a strong presence in Assam, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar. We also have our presence in parts of Rajasthan, West Bengal, Orissa, M.P., Maharashtra, Haryana, Karnataka, Uttarakhand and some other North Eastern states. Drishtee aims to develop and nurture more than 500,000 sustainable rural livelihoods in next 5 years, in partnership with local communities and external stakeholders. This entails the role of a catalyst for community building and an in depth understanding of rural life and businesses for forging partnerships.
Progress and development of villages is possible only when families realize and accept the need for coming together as a community for fulfilling their basic common needs. It is important that they realize that their economic unsustainability may have external influence but the core of the solution lies in their aggregation. Drishtee is betting on the willingness of rural families to invest, sacrifice and contribute towards this common cause. Once the village embarks on the path of organizing themselves, the focus is on identifying their skill and resource gaps which needs outside support. There are capacity building needs, capital needs and above all requirement of channel support for accessing markets. Drishtee takes these needs to stakeholders such as local government, civil society organizations and CSR of large corporations seeking partnerships on behalf of these community organizations.

Vision: Drishtee envisions a world where all communities are empowered to achieve shared prosperity.
Mission: To engage and collaborate with marginalized communities to develop and nurture 500,000 rural livelihoods sustainably by 2020.

Rangoli stores are simply a lever for female entrepreneurs to supplement their household incomes in order to gradually gain more decision-making power personally and within the community.

This is mainly due to changes in consumer exposure and acknowledgement of revenue potential in this previously dismissed retail segment by for-profit corporations. Increasing access to entertainment, exposure to brand-driven marketing is leading preferences towards brand name commodities. At Drishtee, we are focusing to add the value proposition of improving access to women’s products (4 As: Availability, Approachability, Affordability, Awareness) Rangoli shops are not only the anchor roles of individual women entrepreneurs but a open accessible marketplace for other women in surrounding community.
