The lockdown of India and the order of temporary ban on cross-border travel between India and neighboring countries and states have a colossal impact on women workers at Sakhyata Social Enterprise. Women work diligently every day to produce various products and earn weekly to support their families. For those with caring responsibilities, an infectious-disease outbreak is unlikely to give them great pain to their families, not making a living wage and support their families is the biggest gripe. Many stories of agony are related to this pandemic this past month and many more to hit. To make sure there is an economic safety net around underprivileged women working at Sakhyata in these unprecedented circumstances, please contribute generously to support our women and their families.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to Sakhyata.
Sakhyata is a Sanskrit word that means cooperation. It embodies the belief that by working together, we can create a better life for all of us. Sakhyata Social Enterprises (A Unit of Organizing for the future society) is a women's’ cooperative based in the underprivileged community of Kapra in the city of Hyderabad, India. The cooperative employs approximately 50 women to make jute products and garments that are sold in India and abroad. The cooperative is overseen by an all-volunteer team, and most of the profits go to the organization to help continue our work.
