Sourced by Matr Boomie, a Fair Trade Organisation that focuses on finding markets for disadvantaged Artisan Groups. This leather Journal is made a social class called Chamar, which excludes them from other classes of society and severely limits their resources. About 30 families formed a development group. The caste stigma is gradually diminishing as artisans make economic and social progress. Housing, sanitation, and health care access have improved, and children are attending school. Through access to trade, the village was able to realise its dream of opening its first school for girls. Perfect!
