Our very first HEALING ARTS program is our FEMALE ARTISANS group ~ in Vrindavan, India
This caring project is to assist ‘low to no income’ and/or unprotected ladies so they become more able to take care of themselves, family and their children.
This program was started, and is being run by, Subhadradryia personally. She is a qualified Palliative Doctor and the widowed mother of a lovely girl.
These Artisans to be ladies are mostly married women who come from a poor financial background. Most of them work as farm labours – they help with work on other people’s agricultural land, earning about USD 2 per day.
Education: 90% of these ladies have not studied beyond grade 4 in school. 5 % have studied up to grade 8.4 % ladies have studied up to grade 5.
Less than 1 % have completed high school.
The main needs of these ladies:
* Financial stability and improvement in their living standards.
* Medical services ( as there is no hospital in their vicinity – the nearest being 20 kms away)
* A School in their village.
* Better Employment opportunities for women.
These are women staying in villages which are about 5-7 kms away from the beautiful and deeply spiritual Vrindavan town.
All products manufactured by our artisan ladies will be sold in Vrindavan and on our online shop (coming soon). The profits are directly and solely used for their proper housing and livelihood.
