Purkal Stree Shakti Samiti
Purkal Stree Shakti Samiti translates to ‘an organisation for empowering the women of Purkal’. The organisation is a social enterprise that provides employment opportunities to women in rural villages and trains them in creating quality printed quilts and other quilted handicrafts.
More than 125 women currently work under the umbrella of the Stree Shakti brand – their workspace is comfortable, airy and hygienic; there is a crèche providing not merely custodial care but also preschool education to over 50 children belonging to these women.
You can purchase their lovely products and support this great cause at the shop in Dehradun. You can also take a tour around the warehouse looking at the workshops and meeting the ladies who make the products.
Monday – Saturday 10am – 5:30pm. Closed Sundays.
