Our Vision

Our vision is to build an ecosystem that will enable under privileged artisans (especially woman) to get equal opportunity to pursue their dreams. We are committed to supporting the girls through academic education, skills training and professional development until they become independent and self-empowered. 

Our Vision is to help artisans from all around the world (and not just India) to help sell their products online but we will start with India (since it is a known terrain for many of our volunteers) but if you from another country in the world ( especially Africa) and are help us get connected with some of the Artisans in that continent, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Also, our vision is not just to sell the products in India. Our Goal is to help artisans from around the world sell their products world-wide. Again, we are starting with Indian market but very soon we will be selling in the USA and UK markets. Australia and other countries of the world are also on our roadmap.

Even as a Non-Profit our vision is to become self-sustaining and self-reliant. We believe that once our programs are initially funded with help by Patrons like you, Our programs should become self-reliant and be able to fund its own needs. Our Social Enterprise Programs are setup such that they enable us to do just that.

Our Strategy

One of our three key program is ‘Social Enterprise’. One of the success metrics of our Social Enterprise program is to enable under-privileged artisans to earn their livelihood. Artisans today are struggling to find a marketplace where they can sell their products.

We believe an online platform will be the ideal place for them to showcase their talent and help them earn their livelihood. Our vision is to make ‘ArtisansDirect by Sneha Karma Foundation’ that platform.

We expect that by the end of 2024,  We will have more than 5000 products on the platform that are created by more than 100 artisans across India.

Our Plan

Our Plan for 2024 is to launch the ‘ArtisansDirect by Sneha Karma Foundation’ E-Commerce Platform and learn from the experience of selling products online. The Store has been designed, built and managed by unpaid volunteers. The store will help us raise funds which will be used for the operations of the Sneha Karma Foundation. This will ensure that 100% of our patrons donations go towards helping the under-privileged. The experience gained by managing the store will help us sell the under-privileged artisans products online.

In Parallel, we will also be exploring launching ‘ArtisansDirect By Sneha Karma Foundation’ web stores on platforms such as ‘Amazon’, ‘Shopify’, ‘Etsy’ and others.

Program Update

Thanks to some amazing efforts of our team of volunteers, we now have the ‘ArtisansDirect (India) By Sneha Karma Foundation‘ platform ready to onboard products made by ‘Artisans’.

The Online store was designed, build and will be maintained by a team of unpaid volunteers (virtually) from all around the world. Interested in helping out, Please consider volunteering with us. We expect to continue to optimize the store and learn on the what it takes to own an online through through the end of 2024.

In Parallel, we have started partnering with other Non-Profit organizations who are helping under-privileged artisan. We will start adding their products to our online store in the times ahead.
