Project 1000 is designed to engage rural women in handiwork activities aimed to enhance their creativity along with starting them on a journey of self employment. We intend for them to be able to have a degree of autonomy that can help them take their rightful and respectable place in society.
An artist is paid not for his labour but for his vision
There is an abundance of talent that is left unemployed in rural India. The birth of “Project 1000″ was mainly due to the recognition of this opportunity for community benefit. By encouraging skill development and creative activity, we are taking a step towards changing the economic narrative of the women from the hinterlands of Maharashtra.
