Seed for Change: life-changing Christmas gifts
- July 27, 2020
From El Vergel we want to share with you the Christmas campaign of the NGO Seed for Change, whose objective is to promote the purchase of products made by women from the slums of the Indian city of Varanasi. Because at Christmas, there is nothing better than making solidarity gifts with which we can help the most needy. Small gestures that can change lives, are you joining the campaign?
Under the slogan “Gifts that change life”, the NGO Seed for Change proposes that we give help and that we put a double smile on that special person to whom we give the gift and another, very valuable, on that unknown person who receives that gift in the form of food, health and training. All the products that are for sale in this campaign have been made in a traditional way by the women of the slums of Varanasi who are dedicated to the collection of garbage and are part of the economic development and empowerment projects Marina Silk of women of the Spanish NGO.
The Indian woman, although she is responsible for the care of the family, is relegated to second place in society. Seed for Change’s goal is to work towards women’s empowerment and autonomy. Since 2014, it has been operating a craft and sewing workshop, through which 25 women receive training and opt for a dignified and well-paid job. These workshops produce beautiful hand-painted silk scarves, bookmarks, bracelets, mobiles, wooden pencils or detail cards; all gifts with a soul. We encourage you all to collaborate with this initiative, because for very little we can do much, we can not forget.
All gifts are available on the website of Solidarity Gifts of Seed for Change.
