Women's Entrepreneurship Education | Connecting Dreams Foundation

November 2014

Connecting Dreams Foundation (CDF) is a nonprofit organization that works to empower youth and women in rural India through entrepreneurship, health and technology education. CDF connects urban university volunteers with women from rural villages, and the organization has implemented technology infrastructure to run virtual vocational, technology and language courses. In November of 2014, Intuit volunteers continued the partnership with CDF by providing business training to women in self-help groups in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The volunteers introduced the basics of small businesses including business strategy and finance, product innovation and marketing. They assisted these micro-entrepreneurs in the development of business plans in order to access credit to start their businesses and grow small-scale enterprises.
