As part of its ‘Livelihood Advancement Initiative’, Fullerton India also conceptualises various livelihood programmes with partner organisations across various disciplines, thus bringing together partner organisations like Government, NGOs, Socio-Economic Development Organisations, Manufacturing and Trading Organisations in the private sector to implement the programmes.
