INVITING PROPOSALS FOR OUTREACH PROGRAMME OF ‘STRENGTHENING THE LIVELIHOODS OF HOMEBASED WORKERS’ (SABAH) IN BANGLADESH, BHUTAN, MALDIVES, NEPAL AND SRI LANKA
HomeNet South Asia invites proposals from organizations working with women homebased workers in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

SEWA and HomeNet South Asia have been awarded a project by the SAARC Development Fund to strengthen the livelihoods for home based workers in the SAARC region by, inter-alia, establishment of various trade facilitation centers and providing related technical and handholding support. Under this project titled “ Strengthening the livelihood of Home based workers in SAARC”, now commonly referred to as SABAH these initiatives are underway.

The SABAH programme mentioned above will be able to cater to and address the marketing needs of a limited number of home based workers in each country. However, there are many more home based workers who will remain untouched by SABAH. These home based workers work from their home and so, they are isolated, unorganized and invisible. They are not aware about their basic rights and government schemes like access to health service, insurance, housing schemes, social
security, maternity benefits etc. They also have needs of capacity building and markets. Therefore the OUTREACH PROGRAMME under this project is to reach some of these home based workers who are far more scattered and isolated.

For more details including format of proposal etc. please see Guidance Note . Last date for proposals is 10 days from the publication of notice in the press of the country concerned  or 17th December 2012 whichever is later.
