What began as a small artisan group working from tiny, congested work spaces in Old Delhi, the Metal Jewelry Group is now a large community of over 100 artisans focusing on education and improvements in health and environmental impacts.Thanks to the application of fair trade standards the artisans have had an increase in wages and community growth and has allowed them to fulfill their basic requirements for a decent living.
Due to the sustainable growth of this community, the group has begun keeping their children to schools much longer. The group is very proud that the average literacy of the group has increased significantly. These actions clearly represent a cultural shift in attitude including the female role in a traditional community. The support of female education and the female artisan working openly in this community is fostering an educated and open society.
