Impact Story


We envision a socially and environmentally responsible society where women are financially independent and empowered to live with dignity by contributing as equal partners

Born of a belief that a socially responsible and environmentally conscious enterprise and still be self-sustainable we are trying to address society challenges through our multi-pronged approach and the guiding pillars aligned to UN SDGs:

1. Empowerment through skilling: Hundreds of women across Delhi have been trained to stitch, sew and use machines. It has lead to significant enhancement of skills, self-confidence levels and overall joy and wellness. 950+ women have been engaged and impacted so far. (SDG-5: Gender Equality)

2. Livelihood generation: For hundreds of women incomes have gone up from 100 to 300% and for some scaling up from 0 to 4 figures leading to a life of dignity and equal participation (SDG-1: No Poverty & SDG-8: Decent Work & Economic Growth)

3. Upcycling to minimize waste & environmental impact: This is our attempt to uphold our strong commitment towards environment sustainability and provide a conscious choice to responsible consumers. (SDG – 12: Responsible Consumption & Production)

4. Joy to underprivileged children: Our initiative to gift soft toys to kids is based on significant research proving the impact of toys on physical & mental well-being of kids especially those fighting terminal illnesses. The toys handcrafted with love have a tri-pronged benefit of women getting trained and earning besides children getting a personal buddy. 22+ distribution drives gifting soft toys to 2000+ children have been done. We also organize awareness/medical camps for women educating them on topics of health, financial inclusion and security (SDG-3: Good Health & Well Being)
