Why Gender Inclusivityis Key to Lasting Development
Before SukkhaCitta, our craftswomen were invisible. Working from home, with very limited opportunities and no legal protection whatsoever, it was easy for brands and middlemen to exploit them. Struggling to feed their children, they were trapped in poverty.
SukkhaCitta was created to change this. Providing access to education and fair work so these women can change their lives on their own terms. Today, our mother-makers ('Ibus') know how much their works is worth - and they have become true change makers in their communities.
No longer isolated, our Ibus rise together – and take their communities with them. They pay it forward and become multipliers of change.
Together, we have built a buzzling village economy run by women working together, supplying each other with base materials and freely sharing their knowledge - all the way from growing our own fibers to stitching your most meaningful clothes. That's what makes your #MadeRight choice so meaningful. It returns pride and makes women feel valued and seen.
