Since late 2021, Diya Deb and Tasneem Balasinorwala have been working on different projects under the banner of PowerSouth
PowerSouth offers professional services to ensure that women are instated in management and ownership roles at local projects in countries like India.
We are proud to share that GIZ Diaspora 2030 program, and the Social Tides Aspire program have selected the idea.
