Happy Faces Foundation is geared towards empowering women to become self-sufficient, confident and independent individuals.
So far our community has catered to different hotels with homemade snacks, various events with hampers and handmade goodies and made beautifully designed macrame and banana fibre products.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19 and the 21-day National Lockdown, our workshops and production have stopped but we have been in constant touch with our artisans and are providing them Food kits with kitchen essentials that can last upto 25 days. We have not cut salaries of any of our artisans and staff and continue to support them in these challenging times.
We are taking pre-orders for our existing stock and new orders for products from our catalogue to encourage the artisans to come back to the workshop when normalcy prevails.
We accept donations and contributions to increase the impact of our work to increase the socio-economic benefits of 300 artisans working with us.

Currently, some of our women artisans are making masks using 100% cotton fabrics. This is an initiative considering the need to collectively fight the current health crisis and we would like to supply affordable face-masks for everyone.
Some key specifications of these are
– Made with complete care and sanitised process
– 100% Cotton fabric
– Washable. Sanitised wash or normal wash and dry in sunny temperatures
– Reusable for daily non-medical use
We are distributing them at various cities and villages across states, including Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Anand, Sanand and surrounding villages.
One mask would cost Rs 10, and we can supply in bulk quantity (1lac or more)
Even with an uncertain future, we have faith that we will overcome the challenges and strive to continue working and creating employment opportunities for these women.
