About ALC India, a social enterprise in livelihoods


In working to transform the livelihoods of the marginalized, ALC India recognizes the need to work with committed professionals, expert associates, enthusiastic interns and volunteers. We offer suitable opportunities for consultants, associates, interns and volunteers so that some of the best minds can apply their capabilities to the livelihoods of the marginalized in a challenging, fulfilling and rewarding manner.

At any point in time, there are many challenging assignments at ALC India. We are constantly on the lookout for consultants who wish to apply their skills in transforming the livelihoods of economically marginalized communities.

Associates are resource persons who support ALC India’s projects as and when required. They are engaged by ALC India on Short Term Contracts for specific projects and programs. ALC India Associates are classified into two types – Full time Associates and Part time Associates - depending on the duration of the contract. These associates, with their specific expertise and rich experience, help the project execution and influence the outcomes.

The associate, by engaging with ALC India, discovers a range of opportunities to work in their area of expertise and contribute to the lives of marginalized. Associates offer their capabilities in areas including Veterinary Services, Community-based Institutions, Training in Livelihoods, Community Mobilization, Good Accounting Practices, Marketing and Procurement of Commodities.

Students from universities and management institutions from India and abroad are offered internship opportunities that range from 2 months to 1 year. Premier national and international institutions are given opportunities to work in the areas of livelihoods. Students from institutions like Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, Germany, Indian Institute of Management, Indore, IRMA (Anand), Benares Hindu University, Varanasi, Symbiosis Institute of International Business, Pune, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, KIIT, Bhubaneswar, Indian Institute of Plantation Management, Bangalore etc. have connected with ALC India. The internship projects ensure a balance of practical and theoretical learning experience.

Some of the internship projects include “Promotion of Marketing Federation for Weaver Cooperatives in East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh”, “Market Research and Preparation of Business Plan for Milk Based Traditional Indian Dairy Products”, “Pre-feasibility study of establishment of seed processing unit in Farmer Producer Company”, “Developing a leadership module for social enterprises” etc.

In general, volunteers of ALC India are invited to contribute to specific tasks. Their term of engagement is comparatively lesser than that of interns. However, this also ensures a ground-level learning experience to enhance their experience, broaden their horizons and contribute to a cause. Our annual events like “Financing the Economically Marginalized” and “TATHYA” give ample opportunities to volunteers to work for a social cause. This opportunity is often a high point and a catalyst of change in one’s life.

ALC India offers fellowships to support individuals who desire to work on livelihoods issues and make a difference to the marginalized. The fellowship support includes: a monthly stipend, mentoring and handholding, opportunities to attend relevant trainings and prepare training material.

Till now, ALC India has supported three individuals with fellowships. They worked on:

1. Land and water related issues in tribal areas
2. Millets-based enterprise

Interested social entrepreneurs are requested to send a mail to hr@alcindia.org expressing interest in the fellowship. After reviewing the aspirant's proposed venture and credentials, ALC India's Board of Directors will select the individuals to be supported with a fellowship.

In India, for more than 50% of the population, Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood. Indian agriculture largely comprises of smallholders, as 83% of the cultivators are either marginal or small, who account for 99 million agricultural holdings in India. 62% of farmers are ready to quit farming for better jobs in cities and around 30 % from the younger generation are not willing to get involved in agriculture for it being a risk and not giving adequate returns being most important issues. On the other end, our expenditure on food items has increased manifolds as prices of grains, vegetables, fruits and other food items have increased manifold in past few years.

Despite assured market and increasing market price, farmers are ready to and are making choice to move out of agriculture!!!!!!!!

Agriculture farmers today in India are unable to realize large proportion of consumer's rupee as most of it accrues to several intermediaries and value chain actors. While this value realization remains the key issue farmers are further burdened to face several other problems like incomes realized from small-sized lands is not sufficient to meet
Household needs and aspirations, reduced soil fertility, crop losses due to uncertain weather conditions, lack of
Technologies friendly to rainfed agriculture production systems and availability of genuine seed at the right price. These multiple conditions are to be withstood by the new age agriculture farmers to make a d cent living. No doubt, these pressures have resulted in many choosing to move away from agriculture. The above problems can be resolved. The current average annual income of farmers can be increased to Rs. 1 lakh from the current level of Rs. 52,000. All of this is possible through aggregating them into Farmer Owned Company.

Do you want to make it possible by promoting Farmer Owned Company which will eventually have a turnover of Rs.100 crores?
Do you have a burning desire to prove your abilities to manage Farmer Owned Company? Do you want to hand on work with farmers to redefine their livelihoods?
Do you have the zeal to contribute to this change in the lives of communities? Are you looking for a challenging job?
This could be the right job for you, read on…..
