Cause of their Approach
Drishtee identifies and creates a number of 'milkman routes' in a given district. Through each route, it caters to a minimum of 20 - 25 villages. As a social enterprise, Drishtee works towards creating an impact in villages by creating an eco-system of micro-enterprises run by entrepreneurs with a specific focus on women. We identify a number of potential entrepreneurs and train them on the specific skill sets required.
In each route, Drishtee provides a sound kiosk-based platform to deliver services such as Health, Education, Banking, Micro-finance, and livelihood services such as rural BPOs along with opportunities to provide market access and linkages for physical products such as eyeglasses, mobile phones and agricultural products.
