Dupatta Campaign

With the motive of protecting the environment, Ishanya Foundation came up with an event called the “Dupatta Campaign”.

The first phase of the campaign aimed to produce 10,000 cloth bags but we stitched 18,920 cloth bags made by women from lower- income groups, which was used as a substitute to the plastic bags. Cloth bags of various sizes were made from donated materials and sarees and bedsheets were also  accepted as donations for the event.This gave the women a secondary source of income and a chance to contribute towards the society and the environment.
