Support our Annual Fund

Your support is critical to the success of our work. A contribution of any amount to the Annual Fund helps make a difference in the lives of artisans across India while giving us the flexibility to develop projects/workshops that help artisans explore innovative techniques. Your contribution helps us research and preserve traditional arts, strengthen artisan-led enterprises, rehabilitate women from economically weaker backgrounds, and enables us to create opportunities and transform lives across India.


Support our Programs

Artisan Trainings

Seminars/Trainings are focused on professional development and capacity building of those artisans engaged in arts/crafts which are endangered. In a year four trainings of 5 days each are held on various aspects of skill, enterprise and technology. By donating, you will allow us to organise and disseminate good-quality training to artisans and adequate learning material. More than anything, your contribution would be a huge source of logistical support.


Cluster Development

Contributions to the Cluster Development program support us in building artisanal capacity, procuring workshop-material and developing better work-infrastructure. Your contribution is especially helpful for artisans to develop their own collective, and be able to use as investments in innovation, without the security of which, they are unable to create with freedom.


Livelihood & Crafts Entrepreneurship

Donate to this program and help support budding women entrepreneurs walk the path of dignity and empowerment. To revive dying crafts, we encourage women from low-income communities to take the lead to learn, develop and establish their own craft enterprises.
Your contribution will allow us to seed-fund the aspirations of these women by equipping them with the necessary training, resources and infrastructure to impact their own community.


Youth Leadership

As India gets ready to be the youngest nation by 2020, we endeavour to build capacity of young people and encourage them in protecting the rich cultural heritage of their country.
Through entrepreneurial and fellowship-oriented programs we enable school and university students to design, and lead their own craft-campaigns/cluster projects. Your support will be a source of support to these budding entrepreneurs of tomorrow and will allow them to serve communities without any financial constraints.


Artisan Residencies

We established India’s first artisan residency with a view to enable artisans to experiment, learn, and innovate – while engaging with different sets of audiences through open sessions. With your contribution, this residency would be able to support artisan-stipends, paint and other material, and cover costs for artisans’ lodging and their individual projects.


Artisan Innovation Grants

Our Awards & Grants program is only directed at individual artisans for enabling them to pursue education, or innovation in the field of public art.  Your contributions are channeled towards a corpus fund which grant artisans on a regular basis, opportunities to avail travel/education/production related support.
