This is a crisis call for your help and support to Swari Foundation's emergency response team working on ground at Ramanagaram where Rain and Floods have affected at least 1000 households.

In addition, within the END OF THE WEEK, the rescued people will be in requirement of FOOD and MEDICAL ATTENTION.
We request you in this time of humanitarian crisis affecting all, to kindly extend your support to the team on ground and the volunteers from the affected families.

S.W.A.R.I WELCOMES YOU
Hope Is Where the Heart Is
At Swari, we work with communities of Artisans who are known for the magic they bring through their work, since times immemorial, yet are fighting for existence in the current times. We work to make their work relevant to the needs of people at this point in time. From modern designs, newer machines to community wellbeing and lesser socio-economic problems. Swari takes a holistic approach to preserve and promote the art, that the communities in Ramanagara and Channapatna have been known for.
We are Silk & Wood Arts Research Institute.
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
S.W.A.R.I is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a 360 degree approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and Silk and Wood Arts communities.
Swari brings together everyone who cares about women empowerment through KALI. Through events under this project, we aim to also break the harmful stereotypes against women in the society about what women can do and should do.
This year we take inspiration from the life and work of Fatima Sheikh, who is widely known as the first Muslim teacher of India.
Taking her example, we invite women to participate in this all women led feast and community meal in Channapatna where we honour women leaders, students, teachers and all key members of the community who contribute tirelessly to develop their families and the larger community.
Disability is experienced at multiple levels - individual, relational, infrastructural, societal and global. Its impact can be seen in multiple aspects of our life - physical, emotional, socio-economic, political and spiritual. Mental health issues affect us all and awareness towards the same is crucial in the growth of the individual and the society.
We at Team SWARI worked on a disability related awareness and sensitization event on Dec 4th 2021, Saturday, on the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
The event and discussion was a celebration of neuro diversity and a confluence of diverse perspectives on collective and inclusive development.
IFTAR FOR THE NEEDY
Since Ramzan 2020 began, we have given out FREE Iftaar Packages for the needy, 300 packages per day. Each package contained 25g of dates, a mix of 3 cut fruits which is about 400g, a bakery savoury and a 200ml pack of flavoured milk.
We distributed these packets throughout the month of Ramzan 2020, in Ramanagara, Karnataka.
TRIANGLE OF HAPPINESS
Triangle of Happiness is a campaign where products made by SWARI artisans are showcased for sales and customers can select among an amazing collection of products made by them. They will also be supporting a person with disability who is an Affiliate partner with SWARI who will earn a commission for every sale made through them. This way, the customer, the artisan and the person with disability enter into a mutually beneficial ecosystem. We call this the Triangle of Happiness.
This opportunity is available both online and offline.
We set up the SWARI's Langar Kitchen in a school (Tippu Cambridge School) premises in Ramanagara. We cooked in extremely hygienic conditions and gave out over 300 meals a day, as we didn't want to have a maximum cap of meals that we could deliver per day. We have currently paused this project, but we'll definitely get back soon.
