Craft is an economic resource available with a large number of people living in rural areas, particularly those who are not engaged in agriculture. It can be used to improve their socio-economic condition, and thus prevent their migration to urban areas, often accompanied with terrible social consequences. Bhavishya is a non profit organozation based in Frankfurt, Germany, functioning as a social enterprise. Founded in 2015, Bhavishya is committed to promote Indian crafts, by focusing on innovation and creativity. We work in close collaboration with the master weavers, NGOs. It aims to develop crafts based enterprises and explore new and commercially sustainable models of livelihood generation. Bhavishya is supported by various government and international organizations.
