This program is expected to reach this goal by:

  • Developing the capacity of local CSOs and NGOs to support their local partners with “train-the-trainer” sessions on how to teach these skills.
  • Continuing to support and grow the network of U.S. government-sponsored exchange program alumni in North India by creating ongoing mentoring opportunities for program participants.

The Objective of this program is to develop and execute a series of three two-day workshops that provide CSO and NGO representatives working with women artisans in North India with digital tools to increase their competitiveness in online markets.

The workshops should include hands-on training that will teach participants in each city how to use commercially-available technology to sell art and/or related products online. The workshops should also include a “train-the-trainer” teaching methodology to allow participants to share their new skills with women artisans from far-flung and rural areas, and within their communities. Each participant must produce an initial idea to execute by the end of the workshops.
