People who donate to the Experience India event help in a very real way to support Jhoole's and Womanspace’s work of empowering women. This is a mutually beneficial relationship that allows us to support women’s empowerment both here and abroad through the power of social enterprise.
Jhoole is a nonprofit, ethical fashion social enterprise based in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh, India that employs women to help them gain economic independence, invest in education and break the cycle of poverty in their community. Jhoole focuses on empowering women financially, through employment and vocational training, and as individuals, through community programming in literacy, mindfulness, health and the creative arts.
As one of the oldest non-profits in Rockford, Illinois, Womanspace remains an outstanding place to learn and grow artistically, educationally and spiritually. Because of the pandemic, Womanspace has certainly undergone challenges this past year AND we are now moving forward enthusiastically, devising new and creative ways to strengthen and build our community. For now, most of our programs are still focused on smaller group experiences, virtual learning and home-based classes. Technology allows us to serve our local membership and to expand beyond our immediate Rockford community, with class and workshop instructors from different parts of the country. Womanspace members now regularly interact with participants and partners around the world! See our flyer!
Your generous financial support of this event will allow us to continue our innovative, nurturing, generous and cooperative work within Rockford and Maheshwar. You can help us become stronger and even more vibrant organizations than before.
One thing we promise: your gift will have a magnified impact when you invest both your dollars and your trust in Womanspace & Jhoole.
