5 Years of Being Human Clothing - Poorva Shingre
Poorva Shingre works at ‘Once upon a Doug’, a non-profit project which helps cotton farming communities in India in and around Wardha/Vidharbha in Maharashtra. It helps cotton women farmers get a reliable, secondary income from hand-made, up-cycled cotton bracelets called ‘Doug’. These bracelets are distributed and sold globally and 100% of the proceeds from the sales go back into the project and the community. These women are given free training, raw materials and other amenities to start their work. Poorva very passionately help these women to gain back their confidence and independence.
