About 3ie’s Swashakt Evidence Programme

3ie’s new Swashakt evidence programme seeks to generate evidence-informed interventions to enhance viability, scalability and returns of women’s collective enterprises in India to promote women’s economic empowerment. To meet this programme objective, 3ie recently launched a request for proposals inviting organisations implementing and/or evaluating innovative projects and interventions to submit proposals for funding for a period of up to 3 years.

This request for qualifications is for organisations based in India to partner with 3ie in the management of implementation grants funded under this programme.
