Joining hands – Fostering the community
A Room Of One’s Own
Himalayan Naari friends have successfully raised funds through a crowd-sourcing campaign to build a Women’s Center for the artisans of Chaukori. Construction was completed in May, 2017.
This center serves as a work shop, meeting space and also as a community hub.
No More Knitting in the Dark
Through a partnership with SoLight Designs and Himalayan Education Foundation Foundation, solar lights are provided to all Naari and Maati artisans and also to wool-workers in both communities. These sustainable and economical lights are helping them to cope with the erratic power supply in the hills.
