Sahaj

Women on Wings business partner since November 2016

Sahaj, an organization for Women’s Development, promotes sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to artisans and securing the rights of marginalized producers and workers. Sahaj is working with tribal women artisans of eastern Gujarat and provides home-based livelihood opportunities to address the issue of annual migration.

Socio-economic empowerment of the women through art and craft based activities secure a woman’s position in society where she becomes a role model for the future generations. Sahaj envisions an inclusive, equitable and healthy society where men and women support each other in every aspect of life and enjoy their right to realize their full potential.

At the start of the partnership, 500 women find regular income through Sahaj. The joint goal is to realize Sahaj’s ambition which is to enable 5,000 tribal women in western India to earn an income through home-based activities by 2020.

“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”
