Triyuginarayan Livelihoods Centre: Construction Now Complete
February 2, 2015
Divine Shakti Foundation is excited to announce the completion of the construction phase of the Triyuginarayan Livelihoods Centre. Divine Shakti Foundation has joined together with Mandakini Women Weavers of Garhwal in partnership with the Government of Uttarakhand, and Panchachuli Women Weavers of Kumaon to engage and reach out to 300 families in the Kedarnath Valley. The Triyuginarayan Centre is located 25 kms from Kedarnath, the sacred site hit by the Uttarakhand floods in 2013. The flood took the lives of many men in the community leaving behind widowed unskilled women. The Centre is now training 100 families from the region to spin and weave shawls, knit sweaters, as well as produce many more marketable textile products for a global market.
These women now have a range of gorgeous hand loomed products in Cashmere and Lambswool, which we are proud to bring to you during Parmarth Niketan’s upcoming International Yoga Festival.
Your purchase of these products, as well as support of this initiative, provides the means to empower hundreds of women to weave their lives with hope for a brighter, more resilient and self-sufficient future. For this, we thank you in advance.
