SETU is committed towards the upliftment and development of artisan communities by providing a wide spectrum of help and support; be it infrastructural help, skill upgradation, capacity building, health and safety, social welfare, etc.
With continuous training & marketing support from SETU, many artisan groups reach the stage where they need to expand their workshop & production capacity. SETU tries to help such artisans with the expansion process! Many of our artisans are dependent on making carved wooden handicrafts for their livelihood. One such hard working group requested for expansion of their workshop & asked SETU to provide buffing machines & motors, required for finishing of their wooden artefacts.
The Buffing machines are important in the manufacturing of wooden handicrafts and due to inadequate numbers of the same, the productivity can’t be increased.
And so, SETU sponsored them seven buffing machine stations. The artisans are very much excited with the support and are confident about the increase in productivity and quality owing to the new equipments.. 🙂 The workshop extension also means more livelihood opportunities for more artisans!
