About Buzz India:
Buzz India is a not-for-profit organization that provides financial literary and leadership skills to women in India’s villages. We drive in a classroom-on-wheels to villages and teach financial skills through activities, role-play, games and storytelling. We’ve trained 12,000 women in 375 villages helping them move away from private money lenders, become entrepreneurs and expand their existing businesses. We are at a phase where we have proven that our model is impacting lives. We now want to intensify and scale up our activities so that we can help in changing many more lives. Towards this, we need community mobilisers who can spread the impact of our program to more and more women.
