In 2014, Maneet visited an SHG of 56 women artisans in Pata village in the Auraiya district in UP. The artisans were making beautiful paper products for which they didn’t have any market to sell other than the local fares. Due to radio and TVs, they were aware of how much the urban cities were growing. The sole objective for them was to generate income and send their kids to urban cities for education. As they were not able to earn the sustainable income they were helpless in helping their kids pursue a better education. This was the first lesson Maneet learnt, that earning once is not important but guaranteeing to earn regularly and letting them have sustainable income is the key. This will enable them to have a better life, education for the kids and health/ hygiene for themselves.

Maneet’s personal vision is to create a million livelihoods in India over the next decade. He wants to let artisans have sustainable livelihood throughout the year, every single day of the year, which can help them grow.

They have increased the income of 1200 artisans, benefiting over 6000 associated lives by introducing contemporary product designs, providing skills training and by developing technology to connect artisans to global retailers.
