Bringing Prosperity through Patchwork
Gramshree’s Rudra Centre is a space that encourages and enables women of Ahmedabad’s slum communities to be catalysts of sustainable economic and social change in order to strengthen their families and positively impact their communities.
One of the goals Gramshree has for Rudra Center is to create an atmosphere where these women come together as a community to develop their surroundings and spheres of health, education and hygiene. Embroidery and applique is a major skill of the women living in Rudra, which was developed further by engaging them with various initiatives urging them to utilise their potential for the betterment of society.
