Who are we?
We are a group of 4 working towards establishing a sustainable income for the women weavers of Assam. We are Professionals from TISS (Mumbai), IBS (Kolkata), AIM (Guwahati) & a CA (Finalist). All these years, we have seen how the women weavers are paid less and do not have a market to sell their goods.
In our efforts to support women weavers of Assam, we identified Sualkuchi, the silk village of Assam. We are planning to register a firm which provides a platform for women weavers to market their products- we will make them participate in exhibitions, giving them exposure. We are also planning on having an online platform for selling the products.
What is our project about and why do I want to fundraise?
We aim to promote the tradition of Assam as well as improve the standard of living of the weavers of Assam Silk by providing them a direct marketing platform and promoting their products in national as well as global market. To reach the market and promote our product we need to register our organisation and give it a legal form as well as form and website.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
Forming an organisation as well as designing a website has some expenditure attached to it. The registration and other costs will come up to 50 K. We need your kind help and support to contribute something in order to reduce this expense.
Who are we working with?
We are working with the Silk Weavers of Sualkuchi, Assam. So far we have three weavers with us. Our office is located in Guwahati, Assam
