Kaarigar Clinic is an initiative that works towards rural development by mentoring local artisans to strategically grow their traditional craft practices into self-sustaining businesses. They work with more than 500 artisans and among majority are women.
Over the past few years, Kaarigar Clinic has been working with the sole purpose of strengthening village economies. Due to the uncontrollable migration of rural people in search of livelihood, local economies are suffering and many traditional craft skills are on the brink of extinction. By supporting artisans to become self-reliant entrepreneurs, Kaarigar Clinic nurtures artisans to flourish in their hometowns. Kaarigar Clinic aims to develop 1000 kaarigar Entrepreneurs, thereby impacting the livelihood of 1,00,000 artisan families.
