Veeravanallur Mat Weaver’s Society

This is one of the Educate to Sustain clusters that CCI is working with near

Thirunelvelli-TN.

The women weavers here take orders from the Society. Once a flourishing craft with a good market the situation has changed over the last 10 years and the Society barely has money to pay wages. The Society has been very receptive to CCI’s program. While monitoring the requirements of CCI’s program, they have also kept aside a wonderful space for the Saturday mat weaving classes.

On our last visit a lively bunch of 7th grade girls were keen to show off their skills.
