Director Kanchana Moodliar is the driving force behind the concept for ‘Saris for Good Karma’, after the idea for the project came when she noticed that her mother had many saris that she didn’t wear.
Kanchana has been in the corporate clothing sector for seven years and has included this with her many other projects over the years to her name.
“’Saris for Good Karma’ exists so that women and children in Africa and South Africa can be fed, clothed, and given the ability to earn an income. That’s what we are trying to teach them. There are many poor people without skills and employment and basically don’t have the ability to do anything as they don’t have a skill. So what we are doing is teaching them how to sew and run a small home industry. So they can make clothing for themselves and their families or they can use this skill to sell their products”
