“I will live this life as per my choice.” Inspiring words from Dr. Dipti (Ph.D.), a program manager at Rangsutra.
Today we are celebrating International Women’s Day by sharing stories from the social enterprise Rangsutra, in India. At Rangsutra, thousands of artisans are gathered together into small production co-operatives near their homes in the remote regions of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. This gives local artisans, mainly women, the possibility to secure a sustainable livelihood. With an income, they are able to plan their future, send all their children to school – not just their sons, and maintain a stronger position within their family. #SheMadeIt #IWD2016
