About the Fundraiser

 

What Is Khwaab?

 

 

Khwaab is a skill development cum livelihood center for low-income community women which works to create a pool of skilled, confident, and aware women labor force across low-income communities.

 

Our Vision

 

Financially empowering community women by imparting livelihood skills and channelizing earnings towards child education, family welfare and community development.

 

 

What are we Trying to Solve ?

Only 28% of urban women are part of the workforce, lowest among BRIC and 7th lowest in the world – NSS

We at Khwaab have set out to change this statistic. We provide low-income community women training in tailoring and stitching to empower them with a skill that they can use as a medium to earn livelihood without looking at anyone else. This tool provides them the confidence to go out and think, act, and create for themselves and their families.

 

Our Projects 

 

  • Awareness: We enable community women through bi-monthly Focus Group Discussions and knowledge sessions in the fields of education, sanitation, health and financial literacy to make them better decision makers
  • Skill Development: We develop the skill of tailoring among unskilled community women enabling them to earn a livelihood, invest in their child’s education and save for the future
  • Livelihood: We want to create a pool of artisans through integrating the skill of tailoring with the artforms of Ikkat, Shibori and Kalamkari leading to a range of beautiful handcrafted products.

 

Our Products

 

Why Are we Raising Funds?

 

We are looking at a stage where we need to expand our operations to be able to provide a constant source of livelihoods to our women. 

These funds would help us to explore markets where Khwaab artisans can exhibit their skill and products to reach out to a wider audience.
