Based in New Dehli, India, the WorldFinds artisan group provides work for economically disadvantaged women from poor villages around the city, many of whom are often the sole provider for their families. Several artisans who begin work with the group are provided with the resources and training to go on to start their own artisan groups and businesses. The group is very dedicated to women's empowerment, and provides childcare, healthcare, and education to its artisans as well as maintaining a scholarship fund dedicated to girl's higher education.
