The organisation has been working for the empowerment of underprivileged rural women for more than 30 years now. It runs an income generation programme for rural women artisans of Haryana by training them in exquisite hand embroidery on items such as household linen, nightwear for women, baby linen and garments. Also for sale are bedspreads and household linen.
