Project Doopti : Purpose is to Sustain

Uplifting people just by mere words is not enough, until they are backed by actions. Meet my dear friend, Cynthia Fernandes, an inspiration and motivational Social Entrepreneur.

Cynthia Fernandes | Social Entrepreneur & Cottage Industry Owner | Project Doopti

Cynthia has always been a quiet Samaritan to take up causes and initiatives which would look challenging for any one but not for this woman. Cynthia has lived in the Middle East for most of her life, where I had the privilege of meeting her through her social work of helping people get jobs through her job posts, women networking events and many more. When she moved back home to India, she saw the challenges faced by the low income and under privileged women in her neighboring village, a few kilometers from where she lives.
Where most people who look at such a need of upliftment for the under privileged , Cynthia backed her words of motivation with actions ! That is when Project Doopti took birth !

Women working on their orders

Doopti is a small cottage enterprise in Belgaum, where in they employ below poverty women and encourage them to make cotton quilts and at the same time earn a decent living for themselves. These quilts are personalised quilts as per the clients wish or requirements.
Cynthia started this cottage industry in 2015 with one lady, one sewing machine. And today She has 5+ ladies and 7 sewing machines. They manufacture handmade quilts, petbeds, table accessories, goody bags, curtains, bedspreads and pillows.
They have received quite a phenomenal response from friends who are using this opportunity to gift their loved ones as these unique quilts are not easily available in the open market. As we are in the winter season, this is the right time to act upon. As they are dependent on word of mouth and personal references, you can be part of this initiative and help her to spread the word. Your inquiries will be appreciated.
You can contact Mrs. Cynthia Fernandes, Social Entrepreneur and owner of the cottage industry who has been a helping Samaritan towards so many families for their basic survival through her cottage handicraft business
The products ordered are delivered for free within India as well as UAE.
