06 Feb Working with our community.
We work closely with our local community of visually and auditory challenged destitute girls (school and hostel ventures funded by Ramakrishna Mission). While many of these girls complete their schooling and move on with their lives, a lot stay on in the hostels without jobs as they are not equipped to operate independently in the world.
We have recently set up a handcraft unit there to provide employment opportunities for these girls where our team trains them on handcraft techniques such as weave and spiral patterns used on many of our bags thereby providing some means of self-dignity and financial independence. We are rapidly increasing opportunities for them in an effort to empower and grow their craftsmanship with the greatest possible degree of independence, autonomy and participation.
Apart from this, every year 1% of KOMPANERO annual sales goes towards our support for these girls. With every KOMPANERO purchase you make you can be assured you are also contributing to our mission to make the world a better place for them.
