About Sustera Foundation

SUSTERA had organized Climate Leadership Programs locally to find young talents who have been working in the area of climate change and sustainability. They are given a 6-day training on the subject and are motivated to take action. Apart from that, we have collaborated with several organizations to promote entrepreneurship among women for developing eco-friendly products. In collaboration with ATREE-CERC and Bhava social ventures, we have set up a social Innovation where women from a village named Muhamma has developed 22 different upcycled products of which 3 products are now in the commercial market.
