Our time at the grassroots gives us a personal view of the kind of impact we’ve been trying to create. For every individual artisan we work with, 4 others in the community are impacted. Jaipur Rugs Foundation is a network of 50,000 + artisans, which also makes it a repository of 50,000+ stories. Every one of them has a story worth sharing, unique and inspiring in its own right. Stories are at the core of the foundation and its legacy. Through storytelling, we make leaders, inspire artisans, and create impact.
We bring to you a few such inspiring stories from our collection which will help you understand the ordeals of the artisan network and may also add a glimmer of hope, joy, motivation to your day.
We hope to break down stereotypes and the false distinctions between the so-called winners and losers, rich and poor, the needy and charitable, by introducing you to the people we serve with the respect and admiration they rightfully deserve. These are stories of hope, told in the words of those who are the real changemakers- our friends in the field.
