We are delighted to partner with Kiran, a new business in Calcutta for women at risk:

“Our relationship with Heather at Holding Hope Collection began when she was living and working to bring hope to women living under oppression in India, so we are confident that she has a full understanding of what an empowering business needs to truly make a difference to the lives of others. With the support of Holding Hope Collection and others, we have been able to provide stable income to women living in poverty. This has meant an uninterrupted attendance at school for the children of our artisans, control over their own finances through a peer led micro finance group, and one of our artisans has even been able to purchase her own land for her family. And importantly the work of the artisans’ hands is acknowledged as beautiful and worthwhile. The kind of confidence that this brings to the lives of the women at Kiran goes beyond a monetary value. This is true transformation. Buy purchasing through Holding Hope Collection, you are directly and positively impacting the lives of women living in marginalised communities through opening up possibilities for them.”
