This morning's Artisan behind the Art features the handiwork of Anchal's Senior Artisan - Soni.
Soni has been part of Anchal's Artisan Program for close to 3 years & as a result is no longer part of the commercial sex trade in India. By crafting beautiful quilts (like the large quilt above) & scarves - she is able to provide for her entire family's well-being.
"I owe it to [the] Anchal project and its various interventions that focus on not only giving us economic empowerment but also to help us [to] discover our hidden strengths"
More than just Soni, there are over 100 women in Anchal's artisan program & they all need your support. This holiday season, you can enable their journeys towards empowerment & leaving the commercial sex trade by becoming a part of the Didi Connection - it is our campaign to build a global sisterhood (or brotherhood) to make a positive difference in a woman's life, particularly that of an Anchal artisan. And all you have to do is purchase one of their scarves or quilts.
So here is your opportunity to become a part of the Didi Connection & make a positive difference in a woman's life today - purchase Soni's beautifully handcrafted Taaraa Quilt.
Will you embrace the Didi Connection this holiday season?
