India has a rich history of handicrafts. The arts and crafts always reflected the culture and traditions of the era. Although Indian handicrafts have survived over centuries, off late they are on the verge of extinction due to globalization. Many artisans from rural areas are making products and selling them locally. In most of the cases they are unable sell it at a price commiserate with their efforts due to lack of buyers /buying power. As a result many of the skilled artisans live in abject poverty without any prospects of a better future. But with some support it�s possible for them to sell to urban areas/open market and earn decent livelihood.
Humanity 365 is partnering with various NGOs located near these villages and is providing a facility on the Humanity 365 website to sell their merchandise. This will not only help to provide livelihood to the artisans but also provides additional employment in the area.
Currently Humanity 365 is in the process of identification of artisans and products for sale. We will let you know as soon as we identify interested artisans who would like to sell products through Humanity 365. If you have some ideas/suggestions please write to us
