Origin

The present world is passing through two stages of growth. At one hand, we are very progressive in infrastructural and scientific development but on other hand we are gradually degrading environmentally. There is also trend of ruin of our heritage due to modern development. Efforts have been made both by govt. and non-govt. organizations for protection of environment & surviving heritage. Among these initiatives, one thought has been generated whether poor and down trodden community can also play role in both environment protection and surviving heritage. With the view of exploring the role of poor and downtrodden community, we planned to work with women and artisan like potter who can play role in environment protection and surviving the heritage. We also planned to support these groups for their livelihood generation through supporting their products. In this way, we serve twin purposes, firstly will save environment and heritage and secondly improve social and economic life of women and artisan. Keeping in mind of this situation, SANCHAY came into existence in August 2015.
