Women on Wings 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. Women on Wings and Sahaj will collaborate on their joint goal to increase the number of tribal women in western India to earn an income through home-based activities.
