I learned about Anchal Project when I was approached by them to talk about what design and social change means to me as a independent female designer. I was honored to say the least. As a mom to three boys who found a "make it work" moment in launching my own online shop so I could both provide and be a present parent, I know that I am very lucky to even have that opportunity. Anchal Project offers opportunity to women in India, specifically women who have been subjected to the commercial sex trade industry. Working with Anchal gives them a way out of this life, an opportunity of self-sufficiency and all that goes with it, like empowerment, pride and safety. What is great about giving here is you get an amazing handcrafted item in return. So you can get a gift and give a gift. Their textiles are heavenly and I can't imagine anyone not swooning at finding one of these gifts under the tree. You can also help out by donating or becoming an advocate.
