Artisan: Toucan Krafte

Artisan Toucan Krafte

Toucan Krafte is an artisan group made up of economically disadvantaged women from villages just outside of New Delhi, India. Besides providing the women with a much-needed steady income, Toucan also provides schooling for artisan's children, health care, and ongoing education and support. Many women are the sole income provider for their family, while others use the fair wage they receive to ensure their children can attend school and have the required books and supplies. Toucan focuses on educating women in order to break the cycle of poverty and dependence, and channels their profits into a trust that provides scholarships for girls' higher education.

Artisan Geeta

Geeta, the eldest of seven children, left school early in order to support her family and found opportunity with Toucan Krafte. Although Geeta had no experience with jewelry, she completed the training program and soon began to excel in beaded jewelry and crafts. The fair wage she earns has enabled her to help support her family and to send her younger siblings to school. Geeta now teaches craft skills to other women in her community, further expanding hope and opportunity in her community.
