Who We Are
Gauri International is an organisation working for women empowerment like providing work on regular basis and counselling etc. New people are trained by connecting them to already working women. We are working with homemakers from the Garhwal mountains & trying to give them a voice & an identity. The women here as it's every where else are the pivot point of the family but their identity gets lost trying to be what everyone wants them to be. We try in whatever small way to get them to understand that it is in their hands to get their dignity & self respect back. That comes from knowing they too have ability to earn & fend for them selves.

How we Work
We work with women only. All our women knitters work from home. New people are trained by connecting them to already working women. They come once every month to Gauri International to take new work and submit the finished products. Women working from remote areas have representatives who come to Gauri International once a month. We maintain skill profile of every women artisan we work with. They are first checked to see if the basics are clear, if not then they start from the very basic & then the work is given out as per the level of expertise they have. As the confidence builds up they gradually shift to bigger & measurement specific items. Design are planned by the organization head, Mrs. Geetika which is then developed along with the skilled sampling team. The designs that are finalized are then taken into production. We sell mostly through exhibitions, online e commerce portals like Amazon and a few brick and mortar stores across India.
