Our Projects

After School Education Project

The programme focussed on addressing the educational, cultural, and personal needs of children and young people from rural communities. The programme's central strategy is fostering peer involvement.

Kerala Floods Livelihood Project, 2018

Post floods in 2018 in Kerala, through this initiative more than 50 handlooms were revived impacting livelihood of the weaver community in Paravur, Ernakulam district. A major catastrophe was the destruction of the five handloom societies in the Chendamangalam - Paravur area. The region was under water for three-four days and the sheds, looms, huge stock of raw materials like threads and clothes were damaged.

Occupational Health and Safety Panipat

This project intervention aims to educate and generate know-how among the weaver community by creating community-based livelihood enhancement initiatives for long term sustainability of health and work environment.

Women Empowerment Aarohan, Phagi

This project set up a training programme on paper bag making at this centre, with support from Pernod Ricard India. Women and youth are trained to make handmade paper bags

Women SHG Empowerment initiative Chennai, 2020

The initiative is with specific focus on women who largely stay home and are mostly involved in farm based activities. In India alone, 65% of the agricultural workforce is women. Such technology for backyards helps empower them since limited land rights, lack of access to financial resources, lack of training and technology and limited access to political decision-making domains often prevent them from playing an active role towards family's financial contribution and being financially independent.
