Diarrhoea causes 4% of all deaths world-wide. In India alone, around 1,00,000 children, under the age of 11 months die of diarrhea annually. Taking this into consideration, FEED works in collaboration with CHAI (a global health organization committed to strengthening health systems around the world), since the year 2012 to prevent the occurrence of diarrhea, making substantial efforts in this direction by providing support such as making ORS (Oral Rehydration Salts) available to children.
Zardozi, an elaborate style of magnificent hand-embroidery in India finds mention even in the Vedic period. It involves long, laborious hours of skilled Zari artisans to create beautiful designs. Lucknow is home to exquisite Zari work with experienced artisans struggling here. Many of these are hardly able to make a decent living. FEED in collaboration with OXFAM (a global organization fighting poverty and injustice), works for their overall empowerment by providing them with skill-based training and knowledge of modern technology to keep the valuable art alive and help them earn a decent livelihood. FEED is working with OXFAM since 2014, battling for the rights of these artisans and also helping them in earning a justified amount for their work. Our organization is working for their overall empowerment by providing them with skill based training and making their children competent with modern technology by the knowledge of computers.
The project is carried with support of Oxfam India. The project aims at strengthening the livelihood of Zardozi artisans particularly women. Majority of them belong to minority community. The condition of women is worst affected, therefore, these women are given quality training at our training & resource centre called “Hunar Ghar”. Many awareness generation camps & activities are organized for the people at Hunar Ghar. FEED is helping these women in developing samples of standard quality & providing market linkages to market their products.
We are running cutting & tailoring classes for the needy women around the locality. Duration of the course is three months & after the completion of the course certificates are provided to the trainees. We also try to ensure employability to them.

In this program people around the locality including students, women artisans& others are made computer literate.
