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.
A two months training program split into two modules for teaching. Product Development and Sales and Marketing. We include a soft skill development program to enhance their confidence.
Facilitate marketing and sales of the products by participating in fairs, trade shows and social events. We are happy to be featured on various ONLINE sales networks to further product sales.
Project 1000 articles are a perfect way to show people you care. Every piece is a unique work of art, hand made with an eye for detail. They make for charming gifts for corporates or announcements.
