Kumhar community make a living by selling clay pots at a cheap price to the consumer in the Indian market. But unfortunately, most of us are resorting to metallic diyas during Diwali. Clay, or mitti divas are biodegradable, sustainable and environment-friendly unlike the metallic divas. With fewer customers, many craftsmen and artisans are getting poorer day by day and forced to take up alternative occupations. The pandemic has worsened the situation even further. These people need help to sustain themselves this Diwali.
Women for India Foundation is working from the grassroots level to promote the dying art of Kumhar pottery and help these artisans earn a livelihood. Help us provide artisans with the means to produce handmade, clay divas!
