Hosa Belaku means New Dawn in Kannada. Since our inception in 2017, we have had but one mission – to usher in a new dawn of hope, dignity and financial stability into the lives of the villagers of the remote villages of Karnataka. Socially and economically disadvantaged women, people with disabilities, and women supporting family members with disabilities have been our prime focus. We have managed to gainfully employ 22 such members and ensure them a steady, uninterrupted livelihood and hence a decent and dignified standard of living.
We have currently three operational groups – Kirana, Deepa and Ushe in the villages of Kadahalli, Halasuru and Achalu that are trained in various vocational and artistic skills. From sewing, embroidery, crochet, macramé, dyeing, painting, block printing to paper making, weaving and jewellery making, these artisans have been mastering various artistic skills and producing some of the finest handmade artefacts. We continue to positively impact the lives of these women and intend to expand our outreach in the upcoming years.
Empowering rural women surviving socio-economic abuse, persons with disabilities and their family members to earn a decent livelihood working from their home locations through hand made products.
How will we use your contribution?
We need your support in increasing the number of lives touched by Hosa Belaku Artisans’ Foundation and train and support more women artisans in the ensuing years. Your contribution will be used to scale our program and reach out to more women who are in need of our support.
We urge you to be a part of our journey in creating positive change.
