Group Leaders, enjoying an afternoon of work!
In a small urban village in New Delhi's Khanpur, 25 women trained with us for the last two months.
During the past 5 design workshops conducted, they have been able to weave new products using jute.
In two more months of training, the women will be taught to manage and build their own enterprise as they get exposed to markets, July onwards.
In the past trainings, the following products were sampled by women:
a) Lampshades b) Toy-swings c) Pen Stands d) Jute Bags e) Jewellery
While the women have learnt the art of weaving jute, they still need to practice before marketing these products as the quality leaves much to be desired.
What has been really special about this workshop, that the trainer, teaching the women, has been a participant at our earlier workshops, and is now an artisan who manages her own enterprise in Madhubani painting and Jutework.
As a mentor for the women, she has proven how much difference it can make, to even impact one woman's life!
We hope that with her guidance and mentorship, the women can truly learn and seek financial independence in the months to come.
None of this would have been possible without your continued support - it is only with your encouragement that we have been able to reach out to these women, and offer them our support! We value your inputs and suggestions to our work - do share the success of our women with your friends and family, and join us in celebrating them!
