building livelihood through crafts

The Education for Employability Foundation (E2F) supports DueNorth’s craft livelihood initiative. The project begins with community mobilization; skill building training, production and marketing of locally based crafts to build sustainable livelihoods across the region. DueNorth’s focus is to empower women in rural mountain villages providing them with pride and economic independence.
Through recent support from the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) we are expanding DueNorth’s reach to cover 95 women’s self-help groups (SHG’s). These groups will train in Agro-produce, tourism service industries and handicrafts. We have established a training centre for crafts at Chamba as the focal point of our SHG initiatives attracting talented professionals from India’s premier craft and design institutes.
