Challenge

There are 56 families of 75 nos of women and adolescent girl artisans at Badamuktapasi and Brahmania villages. Their economic condition is not so good. They just manage from mourn to dust . Most of the artisans are illiterate .They live in thatched roof with mud built houses. They are practicing only traditional crafts which have very low market value. Now some of them have taken the job as part time job and roaming search of manual labour which leading them to further poverty complicacy.

Solution

This project will help the artisans to upgrade the existing designs in order to equip the present market potentiality. It will bring together individual produces to strengthen the unit and collective bargaining power of the community and provide employment opportunity to trained out trainees through establishing production unit. It will also provide exposure facility and marketing opportunity of the products produced by the unit.

Long-Term Impact

The additional income generated from this programme will augment the family income of the artisans. The quality of life will improve. At the time of need instead of borrowing from the money lenders at an exorbitant rate of interest the artisans will take loan from the unit at moderate rate of interest. Thus the economic independence will enable them to achieve better social status in the community.
