Initiative for displaced communities

  • This artisan group, based in Northwest India, focuses on women from communities that were displaced from their ancestral villages to create a national park. Villagers lost all their farm lands and other means of livelihood. The effort offers skill-building and employment opportunities.
    The artisan group was formed by the help of a foundation, to set up an income generating project, using the talents of the displaced villagers, especially with a focus on empowering women. The displaced community prevailed with their hard work, perseverance and some donation; gradually becoming an independent enterprise, registered under the Indian society act.
