Indian Artisans COVID appeal

Help Indian artisans weather the next few months 

The situation in India has turned dire. India is very close to our hearts, being one of the first destinations we launched.

Our thoughts and wishes are with all Indians, and particularly with rural artisans who were coming out of the first lockdown only to be punched down again. Resolute as Indians are, they will come out of this adversity.

 

But they need help.

If you're looking to make a targeted donation to rural artisans, E.Y.H.O. will channel 100% of your funds to

a vetted collaborative of artisanal NGOs that provide food, health packets, raw materials, wages, and marketing support. 

 

Why artisanal NGOs in India? Why through E.Y.H.O.? 

  • proven access to 75,000 families and 3000 artisans across India 

  • lower fund raising to cost ratios

  • in regular contact with villages, can quickly tailor help to community needs 

  • targeted donation to where it'll be needed most in the coming weeks

  • donating through E.H.Y.O. overcomes India's FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act)

  • 100% of your donation will be channelled. Complete transparency on PayPal pool. NGO collaborative's receipt will be shared on this page.
