Gifts With Stories - Livelihood Program for Women Empowerment

Gifts with Stories is a joint venture between Jaipur Hub and Handscart (a social enterprise founded by a Shaper to help women artisans through crafts in India) to improve the livelihood of women artisans through new skills training, such as blockchain and sustainability. The project's mission is to create self-sustainable jobs to rural women's around Rajasthan through handcrafted gifts with a personal story about each woman. The Jaipur Hub is working on eradicating poverty, gender equality and decent work and economic growth (SDGs 1, 5 and 8). So far the project has helped 45 women obtain a decent job and in turn has enabled their kids to receive a proper education. All products are handcrafted and sustainable.
