Tanushri, the founder of Chindi, is consulting with the United Nations Development Program [UNDP] in India on a state-wide craft project in Maharashtra. Along with the Maharashtra State Rural Livelihoods Mission [MSRLM] and the support of several donors and funders, the project aims to develop rural women's craft clusters. 

As Project Co-lead, Tanushri works with a team of social workers, MSRLM employees and product designers. Our goal is to enable 2000 women by 2020 to earn sustainable livelihoods through craft.
