Post-project comments:

“We pitched our idea to around 15 women from diverse backgrounds and age groups from the village. Due to the recent surge in inflation and the impact of the pandemic, the women are very much interested in spending their free time producing products for us and mentioned that our initiative can definitely improve their life.

“More students from the existing trivenis (our school clubs that work with local villages) showed interest in joining us to help build a brand for the village products. Thus, we have a stronger hope to make this project successful.”
