Access Livelihoods Foundation

Access Livelihoods, based in Hyderabad, Telangana is a collective of six social enterprises that works with women and youth from marginalized communities to reimagine and transform their livelihoods. We are on a mission to enhance the livelihoods of 1 million economically disadvantaged households directly by March 2032.


Access Livelihoods has evolved a time tested SIX STEP Beehive Model as an optimal solution to the problem of economic marginalization. Through this model of work with women producers, they have contributed towards the promotion of successful women-run enterprises in the rural community. This triggers the fundamental changes-in women's status, traditional gender roles and biases and women's involvement in decision-making in the home leading to the emergence of sustainable women FPCs over the years.
