Hindustan Zinc celebrates National Handloom Day


Hindustan Zinc has decided to extend its support towards the handloom weavers on National Handloom Day by organizing an exhibition of products by Sakhi. 

Sakhi is the flagship initiative by the company. Under this initiative, the company had set up Sakhi stalls at different locations including Dariba, Kayad, Agucha, Zawar, Debri, Chanderiya, and Udaipur which is also the head office of the company.

The priority of Hindustan Zinc is women empowerment for which the company has come up with many initiatives so as to support the women of the country. Women from different parts of Rajasthan & Uttarakhand have been given training so that they can upskill their stitching instinct. Today, as the country wants to achieve the motto of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, ‘Vocal for Local’ is the need of the hour. National Handloom Day is celebrated in the country to take this initiative forward and to appreciate how the country is still reviving the dying art.

Sakhi Utpadan Samiti had put up stalls so that a good experience can be offered to the local women in terms of pulses, pickles, spices, handicrafts stitched by them, etc. According to Gudiya Kanwar, Native, Kayad village, Ajmer, Hindustan Zinc made it possible for these women to derive joy and satisfaction from their hard work and dedication. Such programs equip women artisans with the resource and knowledge to become financially independent.
