Shakuntela is sponsored!
Shakuntela is a 40-year old mother of 3 girls. She was one of Anchal's very first artisans and we are proud to now call her a Project Assistant. She works 6 days a week and has recently earned a raise that she is very proud of. She has become the design expert at selecting saris for color combinations of each and every traditional kantha piece.
With an often unstable home life, Shakuntela continues to be extremely dedicated and takes her job very seriously. She is able to provide the only income stream for her family as her husband continues to spend his days drinking. Shakuntela is dedicated to her children's education and determined to end the intergenerational prostitution.
Shakuntela's success would not be possible without the support of our generous donors. We invite you to read more about Shakuntela and her inspiring story here.*Please note, all donations are processed through Stripe.
