Goals and Aims

Goals and Aims:

  • Develop a contract and fund the growth of organic cotton (Bihar does not grow organic cotton so this will be with an inter state farm).
  • Set up self help groups through the fair trade program (smaller self managed groups within the cohort).
  • Build a hand weaving Ashram, in order to produce the cloth itself (enabling more work for the women, larger training groups, a more structured and self sufficient future for the sewing centre).
