Organisation Information

Maya Organic

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. It is 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. Maya Organic also partners with markets and develops designs for products and services so that the efforts of the artisans are dovetailed with professional inputs, backed with contemporary and relevant designs and market approaches. Maya Organic recognizes that merely with inputs of finance/ technology or even some kind of knowledge, little is likely to change since it may not be possible for people to depend on these continuously. Building capabilities thus not only becomes essential but is perhaps the most sustainable and effective way to alleviate poverty.
