Millions of families have been displaced following the recent devastating earthquake in South Asia. The priority for our project will be families with children who have been displaced. Specifically, one of our master artisans has lost four family members and will now have to take care of all the children and women of those families. There are thousands of similar cases. We want to help as many as we can.


Many families’ sole breadwinners have been killed by the earthquake and will need long-term support and care. We will be offering support to master artisan teachers in Kashmir who are in desperate need of assistance.

Long-Term Impact

Provide support to master artisans who have been affected by the earthquake in Pakistan. To help artisans and their extended families survive the devastating effects the earthquake has had on their livelihood.
