Struggling to find a gift for your eco-conscious friend? Look no further! The Sari Bead Necklace features recycled sari fabric, reducing waste and adding a touch of color to any outfit. This necklace was created by makers working with Tara Projects, who are using opportunities to earn sustainable income and employment to transform their lives and their communities.
TARA Projects stands for "Trade Alternative Reform Action." Working in a 125-mile radius of Delhi, TARA is a fair trade program for community development and business. The organization enables hundreds of artisans who create some of the major handicraft lines of North India to sell their products internationally. TARA is one of the pioneering Indian organizations in the field of fair wages, non formal education programs for children and women, health and environmental awareness and further development for its member artisans. Artisan benefits from TARA include medical insurance, interest-free loans and advances, a savings program and skills training.
