Project Gazaab was founded in 2009 with the vision of empowering rural communities to move out of the poverty level, and we realize our vision by helping villagers create micro social enterprises. Our concept of creating micro social enterprise is characterized by the implementation of the Gazaab model. The Gazaab model starts with a series of business workshops at a village high school. We then organize a business competition for the participants, accompanied with a short, intensive period of mentorship. Culminating in the submission of a business plan and presentation, the winners of the competition are awarded S$500 to startup his own business. 

We as a group believe in helping people help themselves. There's nothing better than empowering schools and empowering people to stand on their own 2 feet, independent and proud. By helping them create a social enterprise, we can help them out of poverty, so that the villagers can purchase what he needs for his family by himself, and he will be much happier that way. And he will be able to do it again and again, without any help from anyone. We feel this, is much much more powerful.

After 2 years operating in Bhakunde village, Kavre district of Nepal, we have awarded 5 budding entrepreneurs seed money, and they have all started up and are cash flow positive, bringing much needed additional income to their family. Their stories can be found in the 'success stories' section. 

Project Gazaab today, is expanding into other communities as well, and for this year, 2 more communities will be touched by Project Gazaab, a village called Panchal in the Maharashtra state of India, and a school called Navodaya Vidyalaya in the Indian state of Arunachal pradesh.
