                                          Contribute for an ongoing livelihood initiative
Dear friends , Aham Bhumika which is working in 2 villages in outskirts of Bhopal has initiated fundraising for its ongoing livelihood initiative. The ongoing hand embroidery initiative of livelihood meant for the rural women and elder girls of the two villages namely Mahabadia and Borda situated adjacent to each other need favour with regard to funding .As most of us are aware that  Aham Bhumika is constantly working in the field of hand embroidery for more than two years. The team started with scratch has now more than 30 rural women who have been trained in hand embroidery and now proficient in it. This group of women belongs to the under resourced community of the village. But now they are proud of the work they are doing and also earning.  Aham Bhumika is making all efforts to make this effort self sustainable which will require some more time.

At the moments the products hand embroidered by the rural women are sold mainly through social media. The quantum of sale is not much but we cannot stop making of hand embroidered swatches as this is the  only means of livelihood of more than 30  rural women who have invested a long period in learning the details and  intricacies of hand embroidery and now are proficient with this. At this juncture leaving them will be a big blow for them as well as for us. This is a gestation period only; which will not last for long time because  the efforts are already on for marketing of products and also attending  fairs in various cities  before this  Dipawali. The swatches hand embroidered by rural women are stitched in to  Tote bags , Bags and cushion covers again by small stitching unit comprising of few needy rural women   
To keep continue making of products and provide livelihood to the rural women engaged in hand embroidery work we need funding to the tune of INR 3 lacs ( INR Three lacs ) . Hence is the appeal. We are requesting people to contribute any amount for this worthy cause and support. The fun raised will be utilized to buy fabric , payment of wages to our rural women artisans and to the women of our  stitching unit.    
We have also planned to gift every donor with our awesome product /s. Below is the banking detail to contribute.

Buy a bag and enable a rural woman to earn livelihood



                               Buy a bag and enable a rural woman to earn livelihood 
Friends , this post is not about charity , donation. This post is about providing livelihood to a rural woman. You ( those who are following us since long ) might be aware that in past  2 years we have trained more than 30 women and girls of a village in hand embroidery work. Now they are doing awesome work. We never intended that after being proficient in hand embroidery work we will bid them good bye . Instead we have always intended to source work for them so that they could earn livelihood regularly. We are making all efforts to come up  with more and more designs and products and also trying to find out the market to sale the products and also to develop Ahambhumika’s product as a brand. This will take some time. We are making Tote bags , cushion covers, small sling bags and small applique work sling bags.
In the meanwhile our women are continuously doing the work of hand embroidery being provided by us. To keep continue this endeavor we need fund. With this post we request you all to buy a bag at least and support us. By buying a bag you will not only support a rural woman to earn livelihood for a day but also can see the neatness of hand embroidery and beauty of the product. You can further show it to the likeminded people so that they too are encouraged to buy this. We have selected only one design for this. The image of the same is posted below. We have kept the price of the bag bare minimum so that anyone can buy at least 1 bag. A bag is priced Rs.330 + shipping Rs. 70 = Rs.400. Thus total cost of 1 hand embroidered bag at your door step is Rs.400 (rupees four hundred  ) only . Below is our banking profile. You can buy any quantity of bags you desire.

Below is our banking details to make payment for purchasing the bag /s.

There are 40 children in the rural pre-school of Ahma Bhumika based in village Borda, Kolar Road, Bhopal .The belong to the underprivileged background .The parents of these children work as daily wage labourer. The children do not have access of proper food. That’s why besides  pre-school education we are aiming to provide some nutrition too ; to our rural kids. These will boost their energy and also keep them healthy. 
       To start with we will provide milk added with sugar, some energy supplement like Bornvita / Horlics and some snacks like biscuits made of aata ( flour ) and sometimes some seasonal  fruits. Tentatively an amount of Rs.500 will be required to meet out the expenses for a day. We will start provding milk and snakcs from the moth of November 2015 fater raising some fund to start with.

Our school runs every day from Monday to Saturday from 9.00 AM to 12.PM The weekly offs are every Sunday plus 2nd and 4th Monday of every month. On an average we have 6 weekly offs during a moth and total average working days of the school are 24 days.
For sponsoring for a  day we need  contribution of Rs.500. 
For a 5 days week it comes to Rs.2500 .
For a  6 days week it comes to Rs.3000. 
For one month we  need contribution of Rs.12000.
