Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Empowering Indian Women


Slather on some lotion from Himalaya Herbal Healthcare and there's a good chance your moisturizing action has helped empower women working in rural India. That's because Himalaya Herbal Healthcare is one of a few companies that gets its medicinal plants from Gram Mooligai Company Limited (GMCL), a business owned by its herb gatherers and cultivators.

"We prefer buying herbs from GMCL because of the quality of the herbs they supply us," said R. Manjunatha of Himalaya Herbal Healthcare. "Secondly, they have a sustainable harvest, and thirdly, for the rural empowerment of women." Watch the video below to learn more about GMCL and its role in improving the lives of Indian women.
