The RISE Summit is an open platform to actively map resources and partnerships driven by the RISE shared values – Responsible, Inclusive, Sustainable and Eco-friendly. The Idobro works mainly on market linkage. This is the main objective to create future opportunities for our women artisans. We have participated in this two day summit. The customers were really encouraging to the various products. The women get different exposure through this Summit as the structure of Summit and Art Festival is completely different. In this Summit women developed their communication skills and get valuable complements and suggestions for their products. Here as the crowd was already aware about the handicraft value felt supportive to women.
