Helping some one to create their own livelihood is the best we can do to help them live a dignified life rather than making them dependent. Self respect is as important aspect of life that needs to be upheld at all times to be a responsible citizen of any nation. We at TGG Foundation is committed to transform the lives of people in rural areas by creating opportunities to develop activities that can ensure a sustainable revenue stream, based on their level of engagement and skills. We also offer skill based training and research support to develop value added products.
