Hi,
I am working with artisans and craftspersons for promoting thier craft at international level.Often their voice is not heared by the policy makers and they continuously require a support for bridging the gap between maker to market.So under One village one Product Pakistan AHAN-OVOP i am trying to serve these artisans and practising communites who dont have any other asset other than their skill.It is very unique and if synchronised with the market demand they can change their lives.
Hope to share more with you very soon.
