In India men are typically the earning members of the household for the whole family. After the death of the only earning household member, widows often experience the hardship of life with responsibility forcing them to either beg, prostitute themselves, or sometimes lead them to marry off their young girls to much older men in exchange for cash.
We put an emphasis on providing women with jobs by selling their handmade products at different locations such as our office, school and on our webstore. Coming soon in 2014.
Handmade products include:
Hand-rolled natural incense sticks
Handmade keychains of elephants and camels
