This organisation provides craft skills development training, entrepreneurial assistance, environmentally-friendly raw materials and sustainable opportunities for some of the most marginalised women in Bangladesh. They pay a fair price for the handcrafted products and sell them on to local and foreign markets. In addition to the handicrafts activities, the organisation operates a social empowerment programme, aiming to enhance and improve the social and humanitarian aspects of the artisans and encourage self-reliance by educating them about:
