Empowering women through mushroom cultivation
There is an urgent need to make women economically independent and we cannot think of a better alternative than entrepreneurship development. In order to bring a change to this situation, we at Basic Foundation decided on empowering women through entrepreneurship development.  This can prove a suitable approach for economic empowerment. It is the only possible way to empower women by capacity building and skill.
We decided on introducing mushroom cultivation among women of Block Dhari, District Nainital, Uttrakhand as an initiative to bring a change in this situation.

This kind of cultivation is low cost, simple and ideally suitable for rural areas. Mushroom cultivation has the potential ability to improve the economic condition of women.
