Self-Sustaining Project for Women in Nawabpur
Started in Oct 2008, this project for rural women in Nawabpur has a success story with active participation from Sinko Corp, USA which has agreed to market 10,000 units of the product (a specific kind of hand-knitted dish cloth) that the women are involved in making. These women have opened their bank accounts for the first time in their lives, thanks to this project! These wash cloths were available for sale in Rural Supply, Domus, Summit Market, and Los Gatos Hardware and Ace Hardware. They are being called Tookie’s. It hs provided livelihood for more than 140 women.
