Hands to Empower

While making a recce of the flood-affected areas of North Karnataka, our first train stop was Gadag Betageri. The weavers had no employment and they implored us to teach and train their women who could support the family economically. After touring the surrounding areas, We zeroed in on Gadag for the embroidery training.

The training was without stipend as Pavithra very firmly asked only those who wanted to make something of their lives to join. In 5 weeks COVID happened and this made these women even more determined to learn and succeed.

We are also happy to announce the second batch of young women to our Hands to Empower creating jobs with respect.. The training has been carried out under very difficult conditions as the hall was closed due to COVID regulations. From zero to a life of Hope, their determination to create a thing of beauty can be seen. Please support and encourage them by buying these products.
