The production of handicrafts is (after agriculture) the largest source of income among rural populations – an estimated 11.65 million Indians were engaged in craft production in 2013 and this is expected to grow to 13.93 million in 2017 and 17.79 million in 2022. Data from unofficial sources indicate that up to 200 million craftspeople or artisans depend on this sector for a livelihood. The project on Rural Livelihoods focuses on supporting and strengthening the organizational infrastructure of enterprises in the handicrafts and handlooms sectors.

This Capacity Building Workshop aims to provide the support enterprises need in this sector. The workshop will be a focused program that will enable capacity building through knowledge inputs, networking support, social innovation grant funding and mentoring..
