In 2018, we started our first skill center in collaboration with Tata Steel and Lion's Club Noamundi where we train, skill, and employ underprivileged people. We teach them how to use the machinery and the complete refurbishment process. Currently, this skill center supports 6 families and more than 100 people will be skilled here every year. We aim to open 30 such skill centers across India and for that we need support from corporates like Tata Steel.
Our footwear has walked the ramps of Lakme Fashion Week twice. In 2018, we partnered with Tilla by Aratrik Varman to design sustainable footwear and in 2019 we partnered with Abraham and Thakore to design Eco-friendly Furry Slippers for the Sustainable Fashion Day.
We have been awarded Lexus India Design award 2017 and the social entrepreneur of the year 2018 India by Franchise India & Economic Times. We have been featured in Forbes 30 under 30, 2018, and have been featured in more than 250 media articles and talks. While we don't do it for the accolades, they're a good way to show us we're on the right track.
