Love Calcutta Arts
Love Calcutta Arts rebuilds the dignity and self-worth of young girls in Calcutta, India by providing them the economic freedom to sell paper crafts instead of their bodies. After generations of forced prostitution, poverty, and illiteracy, these women are breaking the cycle and starting anew with freedom and opportunity. Working in the very communities in which they live, these women now have the means to provide for themselves and their families. Created with handmade paper and other local supplies, their greeting cards, journals, stationary, and gift bags are a great way to add beauty and meaning to any gift.
