About the Exhibition

For the last few years, Dolon Kundu has been able to support 250 village women on a regular basis. She began her journey by training almost 1000 living in Burdwan village and from this group of 1000, now 250 are working closely with her at Burdwan as artisans under her supervision and are currently able to support their family. Dolon Kundu now wishes to provide better working facilities for her group of artisans and knows that she will be able to expand further and train other women artisans as well.

This exhibition presented by MeMeraki is a component of IIFL’s campaign to increase public awareness of and financial support for Kundu's terracotta cluster. It goes beyond mere aesthetic enhancements; it seeks to create meaningful socio-economic impacts. With your support, we can transform their working conditions and uplift their lives.
