SKS Social Business Project

GTT had launched its second social business with SKS Foundation as the development partner ‘SKS Social Business Project’ aimed to generate income for the ultra poor in the district of Gaibandha through sheep-rearing in June 2013.

The project however faced many hurdles mainly due to the prevalence of prolonged flood in Gaibandha lasting for 3 months, thus, contaminating the grass and water of the area and eventually causing drastic death and abortion of majority of the sheep. Hence, there was a redesigning of the project to diversify the plan of the business but keeping the goal of reaching out to the ultra poor intact.

The diversification leads to ‘SKS Cow Fattening Social Business’ which aims to provide healthier and organic beef to the market. This project till now has been in the implementation phase of distributing cows to the households.
