The Toockies® project opens an unimaginable door of opportunity for women in India. In Nababpur, over 230 women desperate for a dignified way to earn a living, are mobilized and trained to create Toockies® products. A community center provides these women with a central location for training, knitting, picking-up yarn, and dropping off finished product, though most knitters work from home, as is culturally required, allowing them to work flexible hours.
The Toockies® project makes a difference by empowering these women to take charge of their own destiny.
In gratitude, Toockies has given their knitters a voice by having them learn how to write their names and adding them to our packaging. They have also added their photographs and their wishes to out website so that anyone who wants to know who the name on their Toockies® Brand Product belongs to, can look her up.
