  5. 5. Cairn India – CSR InitiativesRespect | Relationships | ResponsibilityBarmer, a frontier district of the Thar Desert, owing to theextremities of weather, was still largely untouched by development.The total population of the district is about 2 million with a literacyrate of 59%. In the midst of this hostile terrain, Barmer was knownfor the entrepreneurial spirit of its people to create art infused withvibrancy and joy. But, it was the discovery of one of the largestonshore hydrocarbon reserves in the country that completelychanged the fate of this otherwise non-descript place. Rajasthan has one of the highest livestock populations in the country. Despite this, the milk production in Rajasthan is very low due to extreme climatic conditions, poor technology and nonexistent market linkages.
  6. 6. Cairn India – CSR InitiativesRespect | Relationships | ResponsibilityEnterprise Centre Meagre agricultural production, seasonal migration of youth in search of jobs, lack of any major industrial activity, and comparatively low education levels had resulted in very poor availability of skilled and semi-skilled manpower from the local community in Barmer. The people of the region, once known for their exquisite craftsmanship, were faced with the challenge of moulding these skills to create products that would sell in the urban markets and then find suitable market linkages to exhibit their work. Cairn ‘s Enterprise Centre addresses multiple issues prevailing in the region. It not only trains the locals for the requisite skills, but also identifies suitable markets and urban forums for these local craftsmen to exhibit their work and find prospective buyers for the same. In order to create income generation opportunities for women, trainings for embroidery, patch-work, tie-&-dye, ropes and twine making, key-chain assembling etc. are provided. The process involves active involvement and buy-back arrangements with the relevant market linkages. Enterprise Centre also helps in providing information and expertise onbusiness practices to local MSMEs, supporting them to become potential suppliers and service providers to various businessventures in the region. It helps in the dissemination of information regarding contracts, tenders and other relevant businessdocuments.
