The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education work, dedicated to shaping a future worth living around the world. GIZ has over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment promotion, energy and the environment, and peace and security. GIZ’s main commissioning party is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development in more than 120 countries worldwide.


On behalf of BMZ and in partnership with the Indian Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MoSDE), GIZ is implementing the project ‘Economic Empowerment of Women Entrepreneurs and Start-ups by Women’ to promote aspiring and existing women entrepreneurs in India. One component of the project is a film- and media campaign going by the name of ‘Her&Now’. Its objective is to raise awareness and to increase recognition/acceptance of women entrepreneurs in Indian society and ultimately create an enabling environment for women entrepreneurship.


Presenting women entrepreneurs as relatable role models and thereby challenging existing gender stereotypes is an essential feature of the project’s media campaign. For this, powerful stories of women entrepreneurs from the Her&Now support programmes should be told in the form of a graphic story book for adults. Their individual journey, challenges and success will be portrayed through engaging, gender-sensitive and inclusive storytelling – both in writing as well as creative illustrations. The objective is not to tell success stories in the style of an ordinary project impact report, but to have an appealing book that has the potential to change gender narratives and stir a mindset change around women entrepreneurship.


For the entire conceptualisation, development, publishing, and distribution of this graphic story book on women entrepreneurs, the project is contracting a publishing partner.
