Grassroots Leadership Development
Leadership inherently means to be responsible for everyone working with you and lead by example. Our Leadership Development program identifies individuals with an ability to find creative solutions and nurture them, while also promoting all the necessary skills to become independent in their own way.
Due to lack of exposure rural women have spent most of their time doing household chores, so building confidence is the primary challenge.
Through these programs, Artisans are educated about the entire carpet supply chain, customers, waste reduction, taking ownership and organizational values alongside learning the art of rug weaving.
Bunkar Sakhi and Katwari Sakhi Training Programs
‘Bunkar’ and ‘Katwari’ mean weaver and spinner respectively, and we combine the two words to show the origin and craft, alongside their unique leadership style. ‘Sakhi’ in Hindi means companion, and it’s how we refer to our rural leaders.
“Be your own leader.“
– NK Chaudhary
To unleash entrepreneurial creativity in the artisans and to improve the challenges faced due to dependency on one another we implemented self management in the grassroots of rural India.
