Description

The Om Shanthi Project was founded to meet the immediate needs of widows in crisis, while opening minds and hearts to their plight. In some parts of India Widows, especially in poor rural areas, are shunned. When a man dies, his widow’s “bad karma” is blamed for his death – not for religious reasons, but because of long-held superstitions. Traditionally a widow cannot remarry or attend family celebrations. Even her shadow is thought to bring bad luck.

One, very important part of the Om Shanthi Project empowers young widows and other destitute women to become self-supporting.
Premalaya Handicrafts Society where they gain skill in crafting Fair Trade products that are highly valued in the West, as well as in India.
