Help Support Over 3500 Artisan Families in Odisha


Orissa Rural and Urban Producers’ Association (ORUPA) is a voluntary effort towards encouraging and helping the handicraft and handloom artisans of Orissa to keep the traditional art forms alive. The federation intends to bring the rural and urban artisan groups towards economic empowerment through craft and craftsmanship. Most of these artisans are from marginalized communities. Over 6500 women artisans are directly involved with the association.



Help ORUPA provide for 3,050 marginalized artisan families in Odisha. ORUPA will procure and supply basic groceries, toiletries and covid-care related items such as masks, sanitizers, oximeter and gloves. These families’ livelihoods have been severely hit by the pandemic only to be exacerbated by Cyclone Yaas.
