India is very close to our hearts, being one of the first destinations we launched.

As Covid's latest variant ravages India yet again, our thoughts are with all Indians and particularly with rural artisans.

The hands that craft are empty. Many of their owners are no more.
 

E.Y.H.O. will channel 100% of funds raised to a vetted collaborative of artisanal NGOs

to provide food, health packets, raw materials, wages, and marketing support. 

We chose this collaborative to partner with because, through long association,

we have witnessed first hand the results of their stellar work and extensive reach.

Direct to rural artisanal families 

Reputable and established NGOs are the best vehicle for channeling funds where need is highest. Fundraising costs are low and reach is extensive. From years of close scrutiny, E.Y.H.O. chose to donate to Kutch Karuna Abhiyan  and Ahilya Community Service Club (ASCS)

Reached 100,000, including 3000 rural craft artisans.

Work is underway to access families whose need is greatest.
