The Good Gift is a nonprofit organization up-skilling women from rural and Indigenous communities in the Nilgiris, with diverse craft forms. These women are then integrated into craft clusters, which are informal groups focused on practicing and producing contemporary and practical craft products within their own hamlets.
The main objective of this initiative is to instill an entrepreneurial mindset among women from mountain communities, enabling them and their communities towards self-sufficiency. These gifts are designed based on three core principles: they are good for the consumer, the artisans and the planet.
