Maya Organic is a livelihood development initiative involved in developing a network of artisans, workers and micro-entrepreneurs capable of producing high quality wooden products. We are a non-profit company registered under section 25 of the Indian Companies Act and a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation
Currently Maya Organic is working with the artisan community in Channapatna – a small town near the city of Bangalore in India. In addition to supporting existing artisans with contemporary design/product development support and consistent orders, the initiative has also been training several new artisans, particularly women into the handicraft cluster in order to revive the cluster with an infusion of fresh skills, designs and markets and supporting the artisans to build viable micro entrepreneurial alternatives.
Maya Organic follows the capability model wherein it holds that building inherent capabilities of individuals and institutions eventually makes them competent to respond to future challenges of markets, social conditions, environment and politics.
