KVIC will showcase khadi at the 63rd session of the Commission on Status of Women (CSW63) at the UN, New York. The fabric will be showcased as part of its newest initiative “Khadi Goes Global: Empowering rural women to achieve the 2030 agenda for change”. The show will be inaugurated at CSW63 on March 11, 2019. The All India Women’s Education Fund Association (AIWEFA) has taken this programme to the UN in consultative status with the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
The programme would not only ensure acknowledgment of unpaid care work as it provided home-based income generation, it would also harness women’s collective power for the common good. It will develop entrepreneurial growth in the Khadi and handloom sector, besides making an important positioning in the international fashion markets.
