Ashirwad

Ashirwad

This group of 15 women has chosen the name Ashirwad, which means, “blessings,” because they anticipate a better future through the blessing of an income earned. The women meet every Thursday to discuss progress on orders, collect raw materials, and provide mutual support as they share their lives. Most of the production work is done at home, fitted around household chores. All of the women come from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
