The cooperation aims to empower women in the local tribal population. The institution will serve as a critical focus for understanding the most recent technology and trends in agriculture, from pre-sowing to post-harvest. Ved Mani Tiwari, COO (Officiating CEO) NSDC, and Sashidhar Vempala, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head CSR, Pernod Ricard India, signed the MoU.

"Skilling women in agricultural business can empower them to take control of their lives and become financially independent," stated Ved Mani Tiwari, COO, (Officiating CEO) NSDC. The situation is most bad in Jharkhand, where most women work in agriculture but lack the required skills and knowledge to make it successful.

We hope to address this issue through our collaboration with the Pernod Ricard India Foundation. We will provide women with the most up-to-date skills and knowledge in order to boost their productivity and improve their livelihoods. Our commitment to skilling and upskilling the local tribal community in Jharkhand is a step towards realising India's aim of self-sufficiency."

We are ardent believers that empowering women through skill development is critical to building a more inclusive and successful society.

In collaboration with NSDC, we are committed to providing indigenous women with the skills and resources they need to become self-sufficient and contribute to the growth of their communities. We are excited to collaborate with NSDC and other stakeholders to achieve a better future for tribal women in Jharkhand and beyond."
