Saath Livelihoods was promoted in 2007 as a ‘not for profit’ company registered under Section 25 of The Companies Act, 1956. It was established to focus on Livelihood Promotion/ opportunities for vulnerable sections of society (specifically youth, women, people with disabilities and artisan groups) by developing innovative and sustainable business models.

The goal of Saath Livelihoods is to improve quality of life of vulnerable urban and rural populations through enhanced livelihood options.

Since then, Saath Livelihoods has been working towards scaling-up its efforts – both as an organization as well as its programs. While the number of programs is the same, Saath Livelihoods is working towards strengthening its functioning and governance.
