"Himalayan Blooms is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in the rural villages of
Champawat in the Central Himalayas, Uttarakhand.
Started by SBI Youth-for-India fellow Pratibha Krishnaiah, Himalayan Blooms was set up with an aim of helping the women of Champawat become financially independent and augment their household income through knitting, crochet and tailoring - skills they already possessed.
Today, this team of women are self- sufficient at running most aspects of the organization which has a reach to more than 90. Many of them can maintain accounts, keep track of stock and create and email invoices to clients and suppliers.
The number of women working is now increasing organically by the day and they aim to bring in more work to cater to all their aspirations."
