SHE HOPE ARTISIANS AND KASHMIR ART.....................................

 She Hope Society  in Handicraft Sector:
Handicraft Sector

                    Kashmir is now emerging from 24 years of disturbance which severely reduced social   services and providers reaching remote areas. Although no accurate survey has been carried out to determine the exact number  and types of  Craft persons(Handicrafts)  in district Ganderbal / Kangan , it is estimated that about 30,000  craft persons Urgently await  Basic skill upgradiation and development of craft related designs..

Handicrafts constitute an important segment of
the de-centralized/unorganized rural and backward 
sector of our
economy. It is mainly rural based, having reach in backward and in-accessible area. Originally, started
as a part time activity in rural areas, it has now transformed into a flourishing economic activity due
to significant market demand over the years. Handicrafts have big potential as they hold the key
for sustaining not only the existing set of millions of artisans spread over length and breadth of the
country, but also for increasingly large number of new entrants in the crafts activity. Presently,
handicraft sector is contributing substantially in employment generation and export but this sector
has suffered due to very nature of being unorganized with additional constraints like lack of education,
capital, poor exposure to new technologies, absence of market intelligence and poor institutional
framework. In order to overcome these constraints, Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hastashilp Vikash Yojana
(BAHVY) was launched in 2001-02 wherein the 
main thrust is on a projectized, need based approach
for integrated development of potential handicrafts clusters with participation of the craft persons at all
stages of implementation of the scheme with the ultimate objective of their empowerment and hence
sustainability. The scheme envisages a package of support to the cluster of handicraft artisans, which
inter-alia includes basic inputs and infrastructure support in addition to capacity enhancement to cater
to target markets.

Our Society  in addition of other activities worked continuously  for the betterment of weaker sections and  presently  became a partner of  many International organizations which includes Handicap International. Under disability sector we have rehabilitated more than 7500 such disabled cases by providing them  aids and appliances, Treatment, Surgeries, rehabilitations etc.

 Society was  engaged with promoting of local craft  for which about 700 craft persons were already linked with the society in Ganderbal District only.
