November 10, 2009: 03:32 PM EST
Leveraging a $1 million grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation, the humanitarian organization CARE is to create the Cashew Value Chain Initiative in Tamil Nadu to assist 750 women working in cashew faming and processing. The project aims to improve economic opportunities for socially and marginalized women in southern India by setting up three women-owned and managed cashew processing units and 15 literacy centers. Margaret McKenna, president, Walmart Foundation said, "This initiative falls in line with Walmart's overarching strategy to support girls, women and the organizations and issues of importance to them. We are listening to our female customers around the world and want to further demonstrate our commitment to them and their economic empowerment."
