Nest: EMPOWERING ARTISANS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

Modavanti is thrilled to join forces with Nest to revive the artisanal traditions and spirit of Varanasi, India, and promote Nest's mission of alleviating poverty, empowering women and promoting peace through craft. In Varanasi, Nest is working with local artisans to protect the dying craft of silk weaving, an art which has been passed on for generations. With cheap imitations from the Far East flooding the market, tens of thousands of weavers have found themselves out of work, their looms sitting idle. Nest provides these artisans with new looms, safe working conditions and access to more markets so that they can continue their craft and pass on their knowledge and traditions to future generations.

Every $1000 raised will go towards a new loom for a groundbreaking state-of-the-art weaving facility that is bringing together women from Muslim and Hindi communities for the first time and which will revitalize their community through shared prosperity. Join us and make an impact with what you wear.

Through your purcashes we have donated $500 towards buying a loom for weavers in Varansi. Click here to learn more about the impact Nest is making in Varanasi.

Charity: Water PROVIDING CLEAN WATER TO IMPOVERISHED VILLAGES

Clean freshwater is a critical global resource, the lifeblood of farming and rural villages around the world. Sadly, millions of people in developing countries don't have access to clean water and fashion is a significant reason why. The textile industry is the second largest consumer of water and is responsible for polluting the waterways, rivers, lakes and oceans with toxic runoff from harmful chemicals and dyes.

Thankfully Charity: Water is taking action to make a difference. Charity: Water is an NGO dedicated to bringing clean water to people who need it most. Clean water is one of the keys to eliminating deadly diseases and allows for young women to focus on their education instead of walking huge distances in search of it. Modavanti is proud to be partnering with Charity: Water because they offer simple solutions that work like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. What’s more, 100% of Charity: Water donations go directly to the field to fund water projects.

Join us in support of their mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world. Give hope, give opportunity, give education, give CLEAN WATER.

Through your purchases we have proudly donated $6,100 to build a well in a village in the North African Sahel region. Follow the step-by-step progress as Charity: Water builds our well and join us in giving the gift of clean water to those who need it most.
