About Xenon Livelihoods

Xenon Livelihoods is a new-generation development organization driven by a single goal – to make livelihoods more secure, remunerative and rewarding for the underserved. We, at Xenon, like the element of the same name in the periodic table from true bonds with like-minded agencies to co create the path towards secure & remunerative livelihoods to realise opportunities for better lives for the underserved. 


We believe that owing to substantial efforts from the govt., private sector and civil society India has seen a massive mobilization of the rural and urban marginalized & underserved into community-based organizations around livelihoods. This has significantly created and will continue to drive higher demand for livelihood opportunities as well as “collective business” ecosystem services. The time is apt for initiating structural and innovative upward spiral changes in the livelihoods sector so that the marginalized families and their institutions can access new generation knowledge and technology, own and practice skills that will ensure dignified remunerative and sustained livelihoods to lead better lives.

Xenon Livelihoods aims at creating enabling conditions for a just society where the “underserved” are no longer called so. A society where they have developed the attitude and skills and gained access to the knowledge and have exercised their agency in taking advantage of the opportunities within the society collectively to lead better lives, not just for their generation but for later ones as well.

We partner with important stakeholders like State Rural Livelihood Missions, iNGOs, Foundations, Govt Departments, Non Govt Development agencies to assist them with expert facilitation & advisory services aimed at enhancing the community's agency in creating opportunities towards better lives by engaging with the market & other critical stakeholders
