Why ekriti?

“The noblest question in the world is What Good may I do in it?”
Benjamin Franklin

ekriti provides you with a noble way to contribute to the community. The products sold on ekriti are handmade by people belonging to the underprivileged sections of the society.  By purchasing a product showcased on ekriti you are directly contributing to the source of income of those people, and help them sustain. Morover, as you buy a product on ekriti a fixed percentage of the sales goes to a development fund. This is used for furthering various community service projects such as Eye-Care camps, and also for funding more micro-enterprises which can provide a living to the underprivileged, and at a later stage become an ekriti vendor.
