Women Empowerment

This initiative focusses on equipping women with entrepreneurial skills, improving their financial literacy levels and awareness on social security programs of the government.

Key Initiatives

Apraava Energy believes in building a culture where communities are at the heart of everything. Several initiatives have been undertaken to ensure the upliftment of women and children across its communities.


With several socio-economic and cultural barriers, Project Udyogini in partnership with Humana People to People India was born. The primary objective of this initiative is to foster an entrepreneurial ecosystem and economic security for 3000 rural women in Jhajjar.

So far, Udyogini project helped form and co-opt over 225 Self Help Groups (SHG) across 12 villages. Several women have successfully completed their Entrepreneurial Development training, linked to social security schemes, and established and scaled-up micro and home-based enterprises. 

Beneficiary story:

Kavita Devi from Sehlanga village in Jhajjar was unaware about women rights and the opportunities that can help women grow independently. Today with the support of Project Udyogini, she setup a shop in the village. “Initially, I used to sell clothes, then slowly I expanded and started selling cosmetics and many other products for women.” says, Kavita.

With Udygoini’s guidance, Kavita also developed nutri-garden, where she grows vegetables and sells it in the market, enabling her to save and make money.

Apraava Energy, in partnership with CII Foundation, launched the 'Empowering Champions of Change' Program in Assam. The program aims to identify, recognize and support 15 exceptional grassroots women change agents, build their capacities and leadership skills. These women champions will then roll out district level community projects bringing about betterment in the socio-economic indicators in Assam.

We are proud to have identified 15 women leaders from eight districts in catchment of our smart meters and transmission businesses in Assam. These leaders aspire to impact over 18,000 women in their communities.

“The community needs women like them as examples to motivate the community and work on social equity” expressed Mrs. Bijaya Boro, General Manager & Incharge of Kokrajhar and Bongaigaon circles, Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL).

Apraava Energy stands firm in its commitment to progress hand in hand with communities, striving towards a brighter and more inclusive future.
