Contribute for hand embroidered cushion covers made by rural women

Friends, if you have gone through our Tweets and Facebook page update you might  have noted that we have been making constant efforts for the income generation programme for the rural girls and women.After a toying up many ideas we finally reached to conlcusion that hand  embroidery could be a decent  source of income for the rural women and girls. They can do this from home as per their flexible timings. This will empower them financially and we strongly realize that financial empowerpment of a women is the real empwerment.

  To start with this initiative we trained a group of 23  women and rural girls for last 90 days. During this period they were trained with the basics and thereafter  this group was further trained by 3 expert embroidery artisans from Ahemadabad.

Now we are aiming to generate income from the work done by this group of women and girls. For this we need fund.We need fund to buy raw materials, pay to the group of women and girls for the work they are doing.But this time it is not pure charity. We want to give back to our generous supporters. And for this we have decided that to start with we will provide a set of hand emrboidered cushion covers to our every supporter who will contribute Rs.1500=00. A set will comprise of 5 cushion covers hand embroidered  and will be sent by speed post . Dispatch will start from last week of March and we need to raise fund amounting to Rs.60,000/-. For this we would need support of 40 generous people each will need to contribute Rs.1500/- . The material will be dispatched  in India only. 

Invite us to your city : We will come to your city to hand over the material in person, if we get 20 or more than 20 pre -orders from one city.
