Social Impact Project for Controller
Project Description and Impact
Taking an eco-ethical approach to fashion, our organization is placing pre-loved Indian saris at the heart of a new style, and empowering women artisans from Mumbai to become the designers of their own futures.
With women empowerment at the core of everything we do, we engage women from underprivileged communities to become the artisans of our designs and their futures. The relationship with the artisans and the entire training and production process is managed through our NGO’s partners: Community Outreach Programme and Animedh Charitable Trust .
These women come from different backgrounds and families – having often received little education. They come to our partner’s vocational training centres for a variety of reasons – each unique to their own set of circumstances. However, they all end up united by a passion for their work, realizing that their involvement matters and that the initiative’s success is contingent on their dedication and creativity.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
- Gain insight into the ethical fashion industry and into a social enterprises
- Gain cross-cultural experience with a diverse team with individuals from India and Europe
- Getting exposure to underprivileged Indian communities
For Kering employees matched to this project through the Solidarity Leave Program, we are going to book a modest still decent and well located hotel room in the South of Mumbai and not too far from our office.
Kering employees will receive a stipend for food.
