A skill and empowerment development programme – in the face of distressed migration, unemployment, haphazard urbanisation, and environmental challenges, weaving offers us a one-stop solution to address most of these issues.
The Kambli Project
We are collaborating with the pastoralist community in North Karnataka for product development, utilizing their sustainable, indigenous production process (in addition to enhancing them) and creating a market for the developed products. Creating economic growth and providing stability will ensure the survival of this disappearing craft and lifestyle.
