Billie Elmqvist Thurén recently spent two months in Gujarat as part of the Tata Social Intern scheme, an internship programme administered by LSE Careers and the India Observatory. In this article, she discusses her project, which explored the effectiveness of Tata programmes promoting sustainable livelihoods. Focussing specifically on gender issues, she finds that while the intiatives reach out to women and have helped them generate an income of their own, gender norms continue to limit the scope of what they are able to do.
