Shrujan is a
not-for-profit making Trust. Any income that is generated is
returned to the project.
We have developed an organisational structure that provides personal
and economic support to the artists. All materials for the
embroidery are provided by Shrujan at no cost to these artisans, who
are paid directly for their labour immediately after the work has
The Shrujan team visits the artisans in the villages every
fortnight. We have developed a system of delegating responsibility
for production to some of these village artisans. Women with
leadership skills are trained in organizational and business skills.
These women are called Entrepreneurs. An Entrepreneur may delegate
work to a Sub-entrepreneur, as and when required. This structure
ensures that management is always evolving at the ground level, with
training and responsibility being passed on to younger women.
