The Sambhali Trust

The Sambhali Trust (www.sambhali-Trust.org) focuses on the development and empowerment of deprived women and children in Rajasthan. It provides education, vocational training and social skills, thus enabling financial independence. The purpose of the touring exhibition is to promote the charity, encourage volunteers and raise funds.

The panels have been created from embroidery pieces designed and made by women in the empowerment centres. Each panel depicts a different theme including; Save the Plant, Faces of Sambhali, The Sewing Room, Blue City Pink Ladies, Empowerment Through Education, I Was a Wilting Flower, Pattern and The Home.  They tell the story of Sambhali, what it means to the women and how it has changed their lives. Over 200 women and children have been involved in the project.
