India’s The CSR Journal recognizes Women on Wings’ work

This Diwali, shopping at local places in India is now more than ever recommended by the campaign ‘Vocal for Local’. By supporting local shops that sell handmade garments and Diwali gifts, consumers boost local enonomy and support India’s artisans at the same time.
The CSR Journal, an Indian online magazine, shared three ways to dress local this Diwali on November 9. In the article, both Women on Wings and its business partner Eco Tasar get recognized for their work towards supporting local weavers and artisans in India.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
