Shilp Rahat – Save The Artisans and Craftworkers (AIACA)

All India Artsians and Craftworkers Welfare Association

The All  India Artisans and Craftworkers Welfare Association (AIACA) is headquarterd in New Delhi, India. It was established in 2004, as a membership based non-profit organisation for the handloom and handicrafts sector in India.

It works towards the growth and sustainability of the crafts sector, with a focus on providing a better standard of living for the artisans and craft workers. Its main operation is to continuously work on mainstreaming the craft practices through policy, advocacy and facilitation methods.

Last year, AIACA looked after sustaining livelihood options for the artisans and craftworkers by providing  marketing assistance to them to clear their stocks, and responded to their economic distress by paying wages and raw material. They also provided relief kits containing food supplies and essential supplies to various artisan clusters across the country.

This year, after taking stock of artisans’ needs, AIACA, in partnership with Goonj, is relaunching #RaiseWithAiaca, a fundraising effort, as #ShilpRahaat focus to recover lost livelihoods and providing food and medical aid. Your donations will help in
