Who are we

Enterprising Communities Through Welfare And Livelihood Driven Initiatives And Interventions

ARTH Foundation has been established with an intention to empower entrepreneurs from the marginalized communities of our country. The Foundation works to provide micro and nano entrepreneurs with access to welfare & livelihood support services with a specific focus on gender-based interventions.

Our vision is to become a partner in building and supporting the livelihood goals of micro-entrepreneurs and helping them achieve social-economic independence by inculcating an inclusive environment for all and upholding the values of equality, integrity, and diversity.

  • Empowering, enterprising, and enriching the lives of micro-entrepreneurs.
  • Livelihood Enhancement of the community members.
  • Women Empowerment
  • Local & Rural socio-economic development.

Our Initiatives

Arth foundation believes that the welfare of an individual is bounded by the welfare of all. Therefore, we at Arth run various initiatives to enrich and empower the under privileged people.

ARTH Community Engagement Events

ARTH Community engagement events are community-centered orientations held on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Under this, various skill-based workshops, social welfare camps, sensitization sessions are conducted. The aim of community engagement events is to influence communities towards sustainable and impactful change.

Community-Need based Interventions

ARTH Foundation also initiates and executes a lot of intervention programs based on the necessity of the members of the society, at a particular time.

In 2020, with the pandemic holding the entire world hostage, the underprivileged encountered an even gloomier reality. Marginalized people were further pushed into the margins.

Keeping this in mind, ARTH Foundation initiated many interventions at the time to provide access to relevant resources to help these community members.
