“Looking at the adversities of the 2020 pandemic (Corona Virus / Covid-19), we started realizing in the early stages that it is doing no good to the poor sides of this world. We immediately gathered women from these communities around us and gave them work, employment, fair pay and a ray of hope in their eyes. We saw them making their favorite handmade jewelry designs, laughing around giggling which made our hearts melt. You must have heard somewhere that a smile can change someone’s world! Yeah! Well, their smiles changed our world, it inspired us to work harder and land at the doorsteps of handmade jewelry lovers in the world.”
