SUPPORT THE PROGRAM

LET THE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) TRULY MATTER.

Product Development
: consists of learning to handle the wooden loom and the
hosiery yarn and be able to weave small and large articles. Colour combination and
design elements are taught in detail with special emphasis on quality control.
Creative freedom is given to each participant to access their talent and bring out the
best in every individual. This shows astounding results on various levels, from team
building to developing a kinship with their profession.


Sales & Marketing
: consists of soft skill training and personality development by
encouraging fieldwork. We try to participate in multiple trade shows, fairs and
events wherein the women are encouraged to take the lead and interact with
customers to sell their products. This activity hugely benefits them on multiple
levels such as :
> Getting first hand feedback from customers
> Being able to confidently converse with city folks
> A chance to improve on their design and manufacturing abilities.
> To embark upon a journey of self employment
> A chance to uplift their financial and social lives.

FUND RAISE

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” – Elizabeth Andrew.

 

We, as a team, aim to improve the quality of life and standards of living. As we work towards our aim, we need you. Join hands with us to participate in the journey of giving. Facilitate our growth through the marketing and sales of our products. This promotion is possible through a series of events. The possibilities include participation in seasonal or occasional fairs, trade shows, and social events around the year. We are happy to be featured on various online sales networks to further generate sales. You can also volunteer with us to build our brand and, in turn, bring to light the stories of all the women earning a livelihood through Project 1000.

Moreover, we are glad to acquire corporate sponsorship. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to emphasize corporate citizenship and promote your company’s approach to a community initiative. We are also open to donations: donations in the form of cash, kind, and time!

 

Feel free to connect with us digitally or personally if you prefer. A small step forward by you will go a long way in creating a difference in our women’s lives and empowering them for a better tomorrow. 

RESPONSIBLE SHOPPING / GIFTING

The recent Pandemic has enhanced our understanding: our understanding of life and freedom. The present has also made us aware. This awareness has enabled us to take a step towards community building and increase connectivity. In light of the current situation, Shanti Seva Nidhi has begun the non-profit organization, PROJECT 1000. Over the past few months, we have gathered local rural women from the remote village of Murbad and set them on a journey of self-employment. We intend to inculcate in them a degree of autonomy that can enable these women to attain a rightful and respectable place in society.

 

During the lockdown, these inspired women have successfully developed a range of high-quality gifting articles. The unique and eco-friendly products include reusable pouch bags, lumbar support cushions, placemats, smart totes, tablet bags, rugs, floor mats, baskets, bread baskets and more. Each article designed is handwoven on traditional wooden looms supporting the rich Indian heritage.

 

 In the spirit of creating a necessary positive change, we discourage the concept of ‘vanilla charity’ and encourage people to purchase products produced by our talented women. In addition to supporting the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan, this initiative will boost development in the underprivileged community. By selling self-made products, our women will feel empowered to strive continually. We urge esteemed corporates such as yours to join us in BEING THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE and making the festive season more valuable through mindful gifting. 

   

Team Project 1000 is happy to customize orders and incorporate branding messages. We persevere to make the process of gifting/shopping a unique and personalized experience. We look forward to hearing from you at the earliest.
