Commitment to Action

Food Security for the Rural Poor

Commitment by

SEWA, Inc.

In 2010, the Self Employed Women's Association (SEWA) committed to provide food security to the rural poor by scaling-up its Rural Urban Development Initiative (RUDI), which is an agribusiness with its own rural distribution network. Using this network, RUDI will be able to procure produce directly from roughly 125,000 small and marginal farmers to sell through a cadre of barefoot saleswomen or RUDI bens. By scaling up the RUDI initiative, SEWA aims to reach more than 400,000 members from across 1,750 villages in 14 districts of Gujarat and Rajasthan.
