Our Work

Life Skills for All

Our Life Skills for All initiatives empower workers while enhancing business growth.

Life skills education can positively impact behaviour and attitudes, in individuals and workplaces, leading to changes in four levels – individual, organisation, family, and community.

We care about worker wellbeing.

As a result, we have led and supported programmes to advance and empower the workforce, especially women workers.

Our innovative worker wellbeing model empowers workers. 

The model develops context specific initiatives to achieve improved health, financial security, and the personal and professional growth of workers. It enables behaviour change through life skills training, strengthens factory systems to enhance the well-being of workers, and ensures access to social protection schemes and benefits.

We have transformed lives of workers and businesses. 

Over the last decade, Swasti Health Catalyst has enriched the lives of close to 2,00,000 workers with improved health and wellbeing. Women are able to manage their work and home responsibilities efficiently, have better control over their earnings, feel heard and respected at home and the workplace. This has led to a manifold return on investment for businesses.

We connect the dots to build meaningful partnerships between factories, brands, civil society, associations, government, service providers, and other stakeholders. In 2016-’17 alone, we worked with 105 factories across the globe reaching 90,078 workers.

Our vision is to build a caring supply chain culture and scale up worker wellbeing initiatives, particularly for workers in the manufacturing sector. If you share this vision, reach out to us at hello@swasti.org.
