1) TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT UNIT IN JHARKHAND:
We have set up a Training and development unit in Jhumri Telaiya (Jharkhand) where we focus on providing alternate employment options for tribal women currently being exploited in the illegal mica mining sector, due to the backlash of the sudden closure of mining industries in the state. We provide these women from tribal communities a chance to learn and train as crochet artists and then give them employment opportunities to work as crochet toy makers in our manufacturing unit. Currently over 18 women are working in our unit on a job work basis to create our crochet toy range. Our vision is to impart full time employment opportunities with fixed wages to the workers in the near future.
2) COLLABORATION WITH WOMEN WEAVERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY:
We have identified and studied the various weaving clusters across the nation and have visited, researched, and collaborated with them to create our collections. We focus on working with women-based weaving clusters and organisations that provide more opportunities to women in their local regions. Some of the weaving clusters we are working with are – Bhagalpur Cluster, Dumka Cluster, Madhubani Cluster, Sanganer Cluster, Bagru Cluster, Fulia Cluster.
3) SUPPORTING URBAN WOMEN:
In today’s urban scenario, there are many women who are forced to quit flourishing careers due to family commitments. A study proves that only 12% of working mothers are able to return back to work after their maternity break. We believe these women are here to ignite the fire of their ambitions and deserve to be given a platform to shine. Loophoop is dedicated to employ these women who are currently on career break/ sabbatical leave. We give them flexibility to work from home, corporate training for new job roles and promoting a woman only workplace at the office.
