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:
- Gender Rights
- Human Rights
- Leadership Training
- Human Trafficking
- Violence against Dowry
