Gauri’s story is of a vision—of a world where women from across the could bend the socio-economic and financial barriers to support themselves without being dependent on anyone else. Starting in 2012, the Skilled Samaritan Foundation launched a solar lighting project in Sirohi, an Arcadian village in rural Haryana. After observing and interacting with the members of the Sirohian community, she realised the opportunity gap in our rural communities – people have immense talent. Still, they lack the chance and modern-day skills to showcase it. Charmed by the people of this village, she launched ‘Sirohi’ - a weapon to empower rural artisans. The brand began its operations with a single artisan in June 2019 in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. We are going on to participate in Lakme Fashion Week and numerous offline exhibitions. Today, Sirohi has a catalogue with over 500 products made with sustainable materials like upcycled plastic and textile waste by the 1250+ artisans under the umbrella of Sirohi. We strive to expand our catalogues and reach homes across the globe while maintaining our vision and mission to cultivate income opportunities for skilled artists.
