Anchal Project is a nonprofit social enterprise that addresses the exploitation of women around the world. Its holistic program is designed to address the diverse needs of each woman and equip them with the tools to sustain employment as an Anchal artisan and beyond. 

85% of the Anchal's artisans joined the commercial sex trade due to a lack of alternative options. Marginalized from society, these women find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle.

Anchal's solution: Economic empowerment. Anchal offers design and skills training, full-time employment, educational workshops, health services, a supportive community, and access to an international marketplace for women in Ajmer, India and Louisville, Kentucky who have been forced into the commercial sex trade or domestic violence and exploitation. Through their model, Anchal transforms the trajectory of entire families and helps to create widespread economic growth.
