For benefit to reach the lowest in the pyramid, good intentions are not enough . The key lies in strengthening the entire supply chain and utilizing technology to connect the grassroots to the global market place!

Eco Tasar has constantly strived to create sustainable income for the lowest level in the livelihood pyramid. Weave a Hope is Eco Tasar’s program to reach out, to develop and strengthen human resources in its value. Objectives of the programme that inculcate a positive social impact on the communities involved, include:

  • Creating awareness about opportunities of employment and livelihood in its value chain
  • Creating opportunities for involvement of women in the value chain as far as possible.
  • Collaborate with NGOs to involve local marginalized communities in its value chain.
  • Imparting knowledge to producers.

In the last decade Eco Tasar’s social program, in collaboration with PRADAN and other NGOs like Grameen Sahara has made a definitive impact in the lives of thousands of village men and womenfolk,  yarn makers, weavers—literally weaving a new tapestry of aspirations and hopes, for a better future.
