Offer: Looking for a sewing cooperative in India

My colleague and I are developing a children's clothing line. We are looking to hire fair trade women's sewing cooperatives in India to produce the garments.

Contact me if you are part of such, know a group, or are interested in following up on this offer.

We are planning to visit India at the end of January/early February and would very much like to set up prospective meetings to help identify a cooperative which provides fair wages, healthy working conditions, and training opportunities to underserved women.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Few sewing cooperatives in India

Hey Nicole,
I have found below good sewing cooperatives in India. I hope you will find these very helpful:

1) www.iimb.ernet.in/.../Charaka_document%20WP%20333.pdf : This is an initiative from Indian Institute of Management , Bangalore . This is the most reputed institute of India and this will prove very helpful for you.

Regards
Upasana

Farmers? But, I think I found it!

Hello again,
Thanks for re-posting, but this document is about Magarpatta City and farmers organizing to build a new town.

I did some research from your original link and found an article about Charaka Women's Multipurpose Cooperative Society here (http://www.iimb.ernet.in/research/working-papers/charaka-women%E2%80%99s...) and then, looked up the Charaka Cooperative itself here (http://www.charaka.in/).

All very interesting things! Thank you for opening my world a bit more Upsi.
Regards,
